This loan will help Natalie grow her new restaurant in Brooklyn.
Originally from Trinidad, Natalie moved to the U.S. as a young adult and quickly found a passion for the entertainment and hospitality industry. After working for years as a successful event planner for big parties in New York City, Natalie recently decided it was time to make two big life changes: she became a mother and opened her own restaurant, D’Savannah Restaurant and Bar, in Brooklyn. Pregnant throughout the planning and organization of the restaurant’s opening, Natalie now has both a healthy newborn and a business that is already gaining a loyal clientele.
D’Savannah specializes in Caribbean style drinks, offers a full bar, and serves small food plates. Natalie is happy that she is able to share her native culture with her New York community and bring in a diverse range of customers to her bar. Natalie did not anticipate D’Savannah to immediately attract such a large number of customers, and she now needs a loan to purchase a larger refrigerator and oven as well as new kitchen equipment in order to keep up with the restaurant’s high demand.
