In 2015, when the owners approached WPFSI about opening the startup practice, they needed a loan for approximately $37,000.00 to purchase equipment and working capital to make some leasehold improvements and payroll. The doctors had prepared a very thorough business plan. Because of their experience and business preparation, WPFSI was able to provide the necessary financing to help make their dream to open their own business a reality.
“We are very passionate about making an impact in our local community because we have spent many years here as clinicians, residents, and graduates from the University of the Sciences in Philadelphia (also located in West Philly),” Aryee and Brown told A Woman’s Nation.
