Ji's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase inventory for her jewelry kiosk.

Ji's story

Ji is originally from South Korea and now lives in Virginia with her husband. For almost five years now, she has owned and operated a mall jewelry kiosk. Ji has worked in few different locations and is currently in the Virginia Beach area. She sells a full range of hair accessories, from hair barrettes and combs to synthetic fiber hair extensions. Ji is especially proud of the high quality, hand-made barrettes she sells. Ji is pictured in front of her kiosk, with great examples of the products she sells! In order to stay current with the latest trends and styles her customers want, Ji needs a loan to purchase inventory. She will use the loan to buy more hair accessories, including more of the hand-made barrettes pictured. Ji knows she needs to have what her customers are looking for – that special hair piece that will complete an outfit. In the future, she hopes to run a wholesale store.
