Entrepreneur challenge

The owner and former teacher wanted to buy an existing café, which would target an untapped local market for healthy foods and drinks and provide leasing opportunities. A mother of three, she needed financing for renovations and to purchase equipment. However, after her maternity leave, she no longer had a steady income, which meant she didn’t meet all of the lending criteria of other financial institutions.
