Fatima’s story

I was born and raised in a family of 9 children in zimbabwe, Southern Africa. My parents were very poor but my mother always had some ideas on how to make money and feed the family. She used to sew clothes, knit and crotchet things and sell them. I remember very well that during the winter season she would be so busy with a lot of orders to fulfill especially cardigans, hats and gloves. I learnt to do the same at a very young age. I can still sew, knit and crochet. My mother would go to bed late trying to finish up orders and my older sister and I would help her when we were not in school. She taught us that education was important and that it would take us anywhere and that nobody would take it away from us. I was fortunate enough to go to nursing school which has helped me in so many ways. I helped all my siblings with educations funds. I moved to the US in 2003 with the hopes of a better future for my family. I have not been able to bring my siblings here because of immigration rules but I am thankful because I am able to send them money. I have dreams of helping students from the high school that I attended to achieve their dreams as well. I want to be able to pay for their college education with this business. 

This loan is special because:

It helps an amazing entrepreneur to help elderly people through her social services organization.

Business Description

Excel HomeCare Group was born in Florida, St. Cloud in our house in May 2016. My husband and I set up a home office initially until we found a reasonably priced office. Excel is a perfect solution for the senior community who want to stay in their homes and maintain their independence but needing help with their daily activities. We provide companionship, sitter services. We help seniors age gracefully in he comfort of their homes. We provide services like meal preparation, light house keeping, laundry, medication reminders, transport for errands, doctors appointments and respite care to families of seniors. I am 48 years old and a registered nurse for 25 years. I started thinking of my retirement and also how I could help the community and also create employment. My husband is a truck driver and he has been working harder than before so that he can keep the house in order by making sure all bills are paid in time because I had to stop working so that this business can succeed. The biggest challenge right now is finances. Most of the companies in this industry are franchise, Excel is local and family owned. I have dreams of Excel growing big aand that’s why it’s called Excel HomeCare Group because I can visualize it getting bigger. I am proud with the fact that we all the systems in place for HR , hiring, tracking care givers, back ground screenings and I-9.
