"We spoke back in March about guidance on starting my cupcake business and you linked me up with a couple of mentors from SCORE. Thank you so much for the introduction to SCORE because those guys helped me lay the groundwork for where I am now. I studied the industry and prepared a business plan with future projections, and profit & loss statements, and by the time I made my way to the bank for financing, I was ready.  The lender I chose was gracious enough to listen to what I wanted and inform me of options that were available for my business needs. On 9/6, 6 months later, I closed on a SBA loan to finance my dream business!"
