Kaitlin was the first graduate of our Launch! Youth program to receive a CML loan. She needed a $2,600 loan to help fully establish and grow her business, Wildfang Jewelry, making and selling handmade jewelry and scarves.
Kaitlin’s credit file indicated that she had limited credit, but always managed her credit well.
In March of 2015 Kaitlin fully repaid her loan, having successfully established Wildfang Jewelry. She had a perfect payment record with her CML loan. In September 2015 she launched (Ag)+(Au) Clothing that targets successful and modern businesswomen. Kaitlin was approved for a $10,000 loan to build inventory for (Ag)+(Au) Clothing in 2016 but ended up not needing to borrow it.
We have always been impressed by Kaitlin’s clarity of vision and her determination to succeed. Kaitlin is also a hard worker – she maintained almost full-time jobs while growing Wildfang Jewelry and (Ag)+(Au) Clothing. She does her designing and manufacturing on the island and we are impressed with her local and ethical clothing line!
