A loan of $5,450 helped to update her catering equipment.


Lorena's story

Lorena’s job is to keep all of her children, ages 2 through 11, well fed. But these children aren’t hers; they are students of St. John’s Episcopal Church and School. She is contracted to create healthful meals and snacks for the students year-round.

Since 2011, Lorena has housed her catering business, Super Growers, in the school’s kitchen, creating healthful and homemade meals. Though she works with the school’s kitchen, she still needs to supply her own food and come prepared with her personal cookware.

To spice up her business, Lorena needed a loan to purchase new cookware. She ventured to Chase Bank, which then informed her about the non-profit microlender, Accion Texas Inc. She says with the loan, she is now able to create more food for the students.
