Helping Small Businesses Grow

May 11th, 2015   

After more than nine years working in the early childhood industry, Franchetta, a child care center director with two early childhood education degrees, knew she could open her own learning center.  She just needed a chance.  HOPE gave her that chance through a $50,000 loan  to purchase, and make improvements to a child care center.  Little Amazing Creations serves 75 children and employs seven people full time. Her business has been so successful that Franchetta has plans to expand and hire additional staff. She says working with HOPE made her business journey much easier.   By providing financing to entrepreneurs like Franchetta, HOPE creates  opportunities for minority- and women-owned businesses to grow, create jobs and provide vital services for their communities.
