Emergency start up fund

Historically, minority and woman owned businesses face challenges when starting (or expanding) a small business, including access to affordable small business loans. I am a first time business owner and entrepreneur and am witnessing this first hand as I have just stepped into the business arena. Being a small business in California provided its own struggles, but being a first time, business owner, who is also Black and female, but is proving to have its own set of obstacles. I am the owner and founder of Urban Rutile and am seeking financial assistance with my start up business in the sales of crystals, gemstones, and semi-precious stones. Funding provided will aid in the licensing, insurance, marketing, advertising, and establishing a storefront location of the business. I am not seeking a partner, nor am I looking to share ownership of my business. I appreciate all who are willing to assist in my gaining my entrepreneurial wings and helping me get off the ground!
