Women On the Rise:
As of 2016, there were an estimated 11.3 million women-owned businesses in the United States, employing nearly 9 million people and generating more than $1.6 trillion in revenue. Since 2007, the numbers of women-owned businesses have increased by 18%, while most U.S. firms saw an overall decline of 1%. This is why LiftFund works to empower our minority and women-owned businesses, and why the Women’s Business Center aims to lift each and every one of our clients.
LiftFund Client Story: The Calling Card, LLC.
Freda Paz has managed The Calling Card LLC—a New Orleans-based graphic and print business—since 2009, but she was frustrated by stagnant client and sales numbers. Freda developed a focused marketing plan and worked with LiftFund to secure a $25,000 loan, which allowed her to maintain her bu
siness while opening a new storefront to showcase her designs and connect with new clients and businesses.
“I was very impressed and pleased with the easiness of working with LiftFund,” Freda said. “I [appreciated] the accessibility of the process and personnel.”
The Calling Card LLC is just one of the many companies we’ve worked with to help succeed. When clients like Freda Paz take advantage of all of our resources such as our FREE workshops, business management tools, the expertise of our lenders, and our ability to provide business capital, it only makes sense that she would see her business grow.
