December Spotlight: Wholesome Bakery + 🎁 Opportunity Fund's 2017 Holiday Gift Guide

Posted on Dec 13, 2017 by

When you shop locally, more of your money stays in your community. For every $100 you spend, $48 is reinvested locally when you shop at local, independently owned businesses, compared to just $14 at big box retailers. This holiday season, Opportunity Fund is your guide to using the power of the purse to build a more inclusive, healthier financial system. 

Check out this year's Holiday Gift Guide below, featuring #OpportunityFunded businesses with a little something for everyone on your list! 

- The Opportunity Fund Team

Mandy Harper
Wholesome Bakey | Loan amount: 
$35,000 | Employees: 3

Mandy Harper founded Wholesome Bakery in 2009 in San Francisco with the belief that you should feel good about the food you eat and the companies you support. A longtime vegan, Mandy was inspired to create guilt-free baked goods that met her dietary needs. In 2016, Opportunity Fund helped Mandy with a $5,000 loan to hire her first employees and pay for more hours in a commercial kitchen! Last year, she came back to Opportunity Fund for two bigger loans to open her first storefront in San Francisco (coming soon!). Wholesome Bakery was highlighted in Eater San Francisco last summer and is listed as one of the top restaurants opening in 2017 - definitely one to watch!  

The delicious treats from “Opportunity Funded” Wholesome Bakery are a great way to share a little appreciation this holiday season.

Shop #OpportunityFunded to make your friends and family smile while supporting thriving entrepreneurs in your community.
