What Sisters say about this program

“I needed money to really get my business going.  The Grants process is actually really diffucult & confusing, but I was also nervous about taking on debt. Using the Global Sisters Financial Tool helped me build my business & Financial Plan to see that I could afford to repay the loan. It gave me a big kick start.”
