A loan of $5,000 helped purchase rent space in a commercial kitchen, ingredients, packaging, and prepare my all-natural baked goods for markets in local coffeehouses and small grocery stores.

Heather's story

As a native Houstonian, I grew up appreciating all things that my community and region had to offer. Culture, food and fellowship were a big part of my upbringing and I continue to enjoy the diversity that my beloved city affords. As a young person, my parents prepared foods from cultures beyond ours. They encouraged me to learn different languages as well as make friends with individuals that exchanged their culture with mine. Through these experiences, I was able to visit my friends' homes, coffee houses and sandwich shops in our local community. In these intimate settings, I learned that we are all very similar, with the same needs and desires. Today my city is more diverse than ever, making this the most attractive feature of Houston, Texas. I plan to continue the exchange, sharing my talent of baking and making new friends on an international stage right here in my hometown.
