- The Opportunity Fund Team
Lenny and Pavinee
The Healing Tree | Loan amount:
$25,000 | Employees: 8

As a family-owned business, The Healing Tree aims to produce natural health products and services by specializing in teas and herbs from around the world. Founder Lenny and his wife Pavinee regularly travel to China, Thailand and India in search of holistic health products to bring to the U.S.

In 2010, The Healing Tree was ready to expand, but no bank would give them a loan. Lenny and Pavinee turned to Opportunity Fund for support. With a $25,000 loan they developed a wholesale & online retail division, which allowed them to create their own brand of natural wellness products, employ more people, and expand their business.
