Our team worked with Orlander to find and develop the right tools and solutions to track his revenue and expenses. This first step to financial wellness is a struggle for over 85% of microbusinesses who have trouble consistently maintaining their books. Energized by his new knowledge and the right tools, Orlander felt ready to apply for a loan. He received a $5,000 microloan to purchase inventory and boost his business.
Over the course of two LiftFund loans, Orlander grew his business and relocated to a bigger location, improved his credit score, opened a personal savings account, and - most importantly to him - paid for his son, Christopher's college education.
Today Orlander is a proud graduate of LiftFund, with a line of credit from a local bank in Dallas for five times the amount of his first LiftFund loan. "LiftFund gave me the opportunity to prove I was credit worthy," Orlander said. "They believed in me."
