I have been making plaster sculptures for a living for over five years. This is my family’s source of income. My brother and I work in the business, and we would like to invest in it more without losing profits. We want to buy more material and pottery molds to make a greater variety of figurines. We are requesting a loan of $500.00 USD to buy the materials.
