“I started my business to show my children that they should always follow their dreams and, if they put their mind to it, they can accomplish anything,” explains Amy. Amy saw an opportunity to start her own home-based business designing T-shirts. A former Marine, Amy loves the ability to interpret her creative visions. She has even taken ideas from her children – her daughter recommended adding rhinestones to her T-shirt designs. Her business, "Krazy Kids", has made custom orders for schools, football teams, military units and special events.

Previously Amy had been using an engraving company to fill her designs. However, she realized that she could do the designs herself if she just had the right equipment. This loan will be used to purchase the necessary equipment to bring her designs to life.
