Nicole: Ne'lani Inc.

San Francisco, CA

This loan will help me grow my business by allowing us to get our skincare line ready to sell to the market. We are almost there! Once we are market-ready, we will launch with a pre-sale event to fund our first inventory batch. We are already in talks with a few wholesale prospects and they need to assess if we are right fit by getting full-sized samples. We will be able to send them samples with this loan too.

I am temporarily operating out of a space in a friend's business. This loan will allow me to purchase a used mobile grooming vehicle which I will park at my home. Then I can work more hours with more flexibility for my clients and with very little overhead. The vehicle will cost more than the loan but I also have some donations from people who support my concept.
