A loan of $2,500 helped upgrade the cooking equipment in my food cart, purchase catering equipment and do some marketing for my business.


Fernando's story

My name is Fernando and I am originally from Colombia with an architectural design background. Although I had several years of experience in Colombia I have struggled to find employment in that field since my diploma doesn't transfer over. I am a husband and father of four, I have worked various manual labor jobs throughout the last several years to be able to provide for my family. Seeing as I'm not able to pursue my architectural design career, I have decided to focus on my other passion - cooking.
