A loan helped us to hire an assistant, set up our online store, improve interior lighting in our gallery, and buy materials and equipment to expand our workshop offerings.


Mandisa's story

I grew up in Detroit, right around the block from where our business is located. I grew up walking down the street, peering into the windows of the luxury shops, never dreaming that I would one day be the owner of a business here. I am a fiber artist and I found my way to this craft after years of working in the automobile industry, in corporate jobs that fed my family, but not my soul. I began this business not really knowing what I was getting myself into, but I am so happy that things have unfolded in the way that they have. I am still figuring out how to make this work, how to make a profit, and how to be both an artist and a businesswoman. It's a challenge, but I am sure that it's worth it!


This loan is special because:

It will help this second-time borrower further expand her business!
