"Entrepreneurs don't give up."
—Peter, Nature's Best Cleaners
Peter and Meghan's Story
With the help of a $12,000 loan, Meghan and Peter made their dry cleaning business 'green'.
When Meghan and Peter opened a dry cleaning business, they never imagined the chemicals would leave Meghan's fingers numb and competition would drive their prices so low they barely turned a protfit.
"But entrepreneurs don't give up," explained Peter, "so we switched to a 'green-cleaning' process that eliminates toxins and reduces waste."
Meghan regained sensation in her fingers and Nature's Best Cleaners earned new customers willing to pay more for a healthier cleaning service. When business grew by 600%, Opportunity Fund lent them $12,000 in order to upgrade their old conveyor belt and handle growing demand.
