Esosa’s business boomed during the Covid-19 Pandemic, however shortly after, her business began to slow down like never before. Realizing she was financially unprepared to support her business during this plateau, she began searching for solutions.
Esosa expressed concern getting access to capital as a female business owner and as a person of color. Even with good credit, Esosa was turned away by banks when looking for access to capital as a new small business.
During her search, Esosa found NEWITY and reached out about getting access to capital through an SBA 7(a) loan. Working together, NEWITY was able to help Esosa navigate the SBA 7(a) application process quickly and seamlessly, allowing Esosa to keep her business alive through a slower growth period. For Esosa, working with a company like NEWITY was a really big deal to help fill in the financial gap for small businesses like hers.
Reflecting, Esosa has learned the importance of financial planning for unexpected economic slumps. With the SBA 7(a) funds, Esosa has confidently grown her business and continue to help countless people achieve their health goals across the globe.
