Charlie Frank's Pies was born out of my desire to learn how to create future manifestations out of love and not fear. This transition began with the transformation of a 2 room apartment into an enchanted bungalow for healing and meditation. It was a magical space that that gave birth to the concept of a Sweet Potato Peach Pie, which ultimately seeded the vision of Charlie Frank's Pies.

It was a dream for me to create a successful, scalable business before I turned 30. I built my business from the ground up, and used every penny of my savings and personal income to get the business moving. However, through the sacrifices I made to build the business, and the recent harsh winter which reduced my sales by 97%, I have no funds to start my business back up again. This loan will be used to purchase my spring and summer inventory, and to purchase and install an AC unit, to allow for comfortable shopping on the hot summer days. I've worked so hard to build my business, and I refuse to let a bad winter close it down!
