Juana’s story

My Name Is Juana Ruiz and since I was 6 I was involved in business. At that age I used go help my great grandma with her business of used clothing in Mexico. These experiences helped me to become a very independent and resourceful since I was just a kid.

In 1993 I arrived to the United States and I worked for different companies but I always kept my dream of having my own business.

I never gave up on this idea and, thanks to my efforts, my dream became true in June 2001 where I opened the shop “Juanitas International Party Store”. I began selling creativity tools, party products and creations for weddings and birthdays.

I’ve been very satisfied with my efforts and I will always try to get better, thanking God for opening me doors to keep prospering. 

This loan is special because:

It helps expand a woman-owned party store in Oakland, California.

More about this loan

Business Description

I opened “Juanitas International Party Store” 15 years ago.

When I started the shop featured only materials for weddings and birthdays but during the recent time I’ve been able to expand my products with more accessories like pinatas and more common merchandise.

My aim now is to increase again the variety of products I can offer. In specific canopies, chairs and tables for weddings, more accessories. I would also like to renovate the shop as new painting and make the shop more customer friendly and cozy.

I love being able to provide good service to my clients and have the best options to leave them satisfied. My best gain is to see my customers happy.

What is the purpose of this loan?

This will help me especially to purchase rental equipment such as chairs, tables, canopies, and fun games such as bounce castles. I have some now, but I need more sizes and options for customers. These are more profitable options for me than decorative supplies.
