KC Daiquiri Shop
When the owners of KC Daiquiri Shop were building out their space and needed to secure funding to equip their kitchen, several financial institutions turned them away. That's where our LoanUp program stepped in, providing financing to help them open what is now a thriving business. The owners tell us about their experience and how difficulties in securing financing are a too-common reality for minority entrepreneurs.
