Raquel A., Jessica and Raquel R. all live in the same home under the financial support of Raquel R.’s husband. To help him, they decided to go into business together. Raquel A., with 12 years of retail experience decided to open her own business and partner with the other two.

Serving Jessica’s boutique, a women’s clothing and accessories store in El Paso, Texas, the three ladies knew with the growth of their business, they needed to obtain working capital.

When Raquel A. ventured to community partner, Project Vida, where she regularly attends monthly business seminars, she was referred to nonprofit microlender LiftFund

The loan will provide the girls with funds to purchase accessories and clothes for the, almost-two-year-old, business located in a busy part of town.

Angelica knew she needed to find work in her new home after moving from Durango, Mexico to El Paso, Texas. She debated on what would best suit her lifestyle then decided to return to retail.

She ultimately decided to put her 20 years of experience in that industry to work to start her own business:  Life Time Watch, a store where she sells new watches purchased from wholesale. The five-year-old business only carries the latest styles, Angelica says. Currently, she employees two people, but Angelica plans to hire more as her business expands.

Angelica’s daughter, a student at St. Mary’s University, found out about LiftFund and encouraged her to apply for a loan. Upon approval, Angelica used the loan to purchase inventory for the holiday season.
