Jeffery is on a mission to create his own line of fashionable clothing. With three years of experience in fashion, Jeffery took action and completed business education preparatory classes at Youth Entrepreneur Incubators at the Elevate Entrepreneurship System, an organization that helps prospective business owners in Little Rock, Arkansas.
Jeffery’s new venture helps brand other businesses by creating and printing logos on shirts. Jeffery is determined to further launch his business and has already invested his own funds in start-up costs.
Through Elevate’s partnership with nonprofit microlender Accion Texas Inc., Jeffrey inquired about a loan to purchase more equipment and market his T-shirt making business, Cynosure. He applied and was approved for $5,450, providing him with the working capital he needed.
