About the company

Earthfire is a pottery/painting studio, drop ins, will glaze and fire potter. They also do in-studio classes in clay molding and painting, and after school art classes at school sites.

Challenge

Asima first came to the Renaissance Financial Resource Center looking for help getting a small business loan.

Result

A year after receiving the loan, Asima is working on growing her business and getting more customers. She is currently working with Renaissance to improve her online marketing, and apply for a women-owned business grant from the city. Asima received the business loan she originally came to Renaissance for help with, and this allowed her to offer more services and classes. Through consulting services, Asima has been improving her website, online marketing, and created an online calendar of events. This has increased her sales (both through product sales and events) in the last several months.

Renaissance has been a great asset. The Financial Resource Center is a treasure. Renaissance has really helped not just with getting the loan, but with mentorship.
