‘La Belle’ Salon

I’m Rachel. I have spent 40 years managing my small ladies’ lingerie boutique. I am a single mother and my two sons have been drafted to the army. My small business was closed in the first week of the war and is now operating on reduced hours. I am experiencing a sharp drop of about 50% in income and could really use your help.

My impact loan status:

I want to renovate my store, refresh it, allow myself to increase inventory, and also set up an online store.

My business - My spark

In my beloved store, I specialize in selling women’s clothing. Over the past four decades, my business has thrived, and I’ve had the privilege of serving customers who have become almost like family to me. In a small, local shop, the connections forged are unique and can’t be replicated in larger chain stores or malls. For instance, I’ve had the pleasure of serving women I’ve known since they were young, and now they return with their daughters. There’s no greater joy for me than seeing this generational connection continue to flourish. 

A few more words

I live in Rehovot with my three sons. As a single mother, I’ve faced various challenges. Nevertheless, my sons have thrived, completing their military service. I take pride in being a strong and accomplished self-employed individual. I have a deep passion for serving my customers and greatly value the personal connections I make with women from all walks of Israeli society.

Both my sons are in the IDF. My small salon was closed for the first week and now with reduced hours I am experiencing a significant decline in revenue.
