A loan helped me with the growth and expansion of creating a personalized Shea Butter Body Bar. Thanks.

Janela's story

I developed many of my passions and skills from my mother while growing up in Panama. Panama is where I learned to braid and work on natural hair, to heal with natural product remedies and to design unique pieces of jewelry. I brought all of these passions to the states and specifically to Racine, Wisconsin. In 2006, I started SheaBroJae’s, which is currently located on Main Street in Downtown Racine. SheaBroJae’s features all of my passions in life! Key products are handmade hats, jewelry and paintings. I have also developed a large following for my hand-made 100% shea butter products and essential oils. Because of the huge and growing demand for these products, I am excited to expand this product line by adding a “Shea Butter Bar”. This will allow clients to personalize the shea butter by adding their favorite fragrances and essential oils. I also plan to develop events around this for bridal showers, baby showers, birthday parties, etc. I hope you will fund my Kiva loan and help me continue to grow SheaBroJae’s!

This loan is special because:

it helps a successful female entrepreneur meet demands for her growing line of natural, community-conscious products.
