My first attempt to import fresh coffee beans from Africa failed because of the travel band that was intimidated subséquent to the COVID-19 pandemic. The funds used for this purchased was $20k loans from family members. Unfortunately, I was unable to get my coffee beans in the U. S. because all air traffic coming from Africa was denied entry to the United States. Secondly, I was denied for the first PPP by SBA on the basis that my company had no past-performance.
Sir, I really need this fund to help me recover my lost and to be able to pay back my loaners.
Your local Chamber of Commerce should be able to help you with these items. Also, you may look to a larger chamber that has a SCORE team, which are former business executives providing assistance in building businesses. Also the SBA has office hours in many chamber offices, they may have programs to assist you.
