“When the city shut down, my aunt and I pivoted our business model from fresh Balkan comfort food that we sold at street fairs to frozen bureks clients could purchase online.
Our online products were well received, but we needed the capital to help us expand our capacity to meet the demand. Luckily, the Bank Leumi Small Business Support Initiative at the Hebrew Free Loan Society was there to provide us with an interest-free loan option to help us grow, without putting our finances at risk.
Thank you for believing in us, at a very uncertain time for small business owners everywhere.”
