A loan helped to pay for and produce a new line of clothing for her September clothing launch.

Diane's story

Diane’s love for fashion inspired her to launch her own clothing business and clothing line called N.G.U. She has been working with 2 manufacturers, one from China and one from New York, to produce the samples. In 2010, Diane’s life drastically changed when she was diagnosed with a very rare nerve disorder. After her diagnosis, she went through brain surgery and then recovery. With the help of her husband, Diane was able to go back to her job, work full-time again and prepare the new clothing line for fall 2011. She already has 10 boutiques ready to distribute her fall collections. In order to increase the advertising for her new collection, she participated in a fashion show in Chicago in May, will produce a commercial and work with a PR agency to brand the N.G.U. collection. With this loan from ACCION USA, Diane will be producing a new line of clothing in time for her September clothing launch. Diane is very excited about her clothing line and grateful that her good health can’t get in the way of her productivity!
