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

A loan helped to pay for moving expenses to a new, larger location, more accessible both for herself and her clients.

Lidia's story

Lidia Tax Service was established by Lidia as a sole proprietorship. She began tax preparation in 1995 in an income tax office. After a few years working in an income tax office, she decided to take the plunge and run an small tax preparation business out of her home. She began using a computer borrowed from a friend and her first clients were only friends and friends of friends. Today, however, almost 20 years later, she boasts of multiplying her client pool because of her dedication. Lidia is a strong advocate for financial literacy, especially in the Hispanic community where it is so low. Her clientele is predominantly Hispanic, non-English speakers who cannot use a computer. She has established herself in that community as a trustworthy, reliable source for financial services. She recently added immigration consultation services, bookkeeping, accounting, and other financial services. With this loan, Ms. Lidia will be able to cover the expenses to move to a larger location that is also more accessible to her clients.
