Entrepreneur Finds Sweet Success with LiftFund

We love to put the spotlight on some amazing women who stepped out and took on the challenge of being an entrepreneur. Whether it was for their family, for themselves, or just for something new, these women have been successful in their efforts and it’s been an honor to have been able to give them the lift they needed to make their dream a reality.


As a single mother, she sacrificed and worked hard to make her passion a reality and eventually a successful gourmet chocolate business. After finding LiftFund online, Janie received a loan for working capital for her new business.

Today, you can find Janie working with her son at the local farmers market at the Pearl Brewery in San Antonio. Janie was recently offered the opportunity to showcase her delicious chocolates inside every room in the brand new luxurious Hotel Emma located at the Pearl. Janie is currently working with the Westside Development Corporation to locate potential retail locations in San Antonio’s vibrant West Side.

Janie’s chocolates are made from seasonal ingredients such as jalapenos, pecans, fruits and Texas honey, all sourced locally. Janie gives back by supporting local farmers and suppliers and encourages others to do the same.  It is proven that every dollar spent on small businesses returns three times more money to the local economy.  Janie is happy to house her operation in one of the poorest and underserved zip codes in San Antonio.

All products are made in-house and hand stirred in small batches and chocolate products are hand dipped. To learn more about Ms. Chocolatier and her products, visit http://www.mschocolatier.com/. You can also find her on Facebook and follow along with all she does.

LiftFund is proud to offer so many opportunities to entrepreneurs and business owners alike. Our goal is to provide the business resources, the business tools, and business loans to make as big of an impact as possible. Sometimes businesses just need a lift, and that is why we exist.
