“My two sisters run an online jewelry business and I witnessed them firsthand having an overstock of inventory and not creating enough profit to continue to create. This set their business back months and with most citizens in financial trouble, their orders dropped significantly. This is my firsthand experience watching a small business struggle to stay afloat. They are lucky that they can come back from college to stay at our parents home, but watching their business struggle made me even more infuriated about the uneven distribution of money going to large corporations who weren’t in need of these funds. Small business owners work to pay their mortgage, rent, student loans, electricity and water bills on top of the needs for their business. The government has completely overlooked the needs of these citizens. Small businesses hold the culture and pride of a city, they need to be kept alive during the country’s hardships.”
When It Comes To The PPP, You Have To See It To Believe It
Sophie Lipscomb has had a front-row seat to the mishandling of the PPP. She watched her two sisters, who run an online jewelry business, fight to sell an overstock of inventory and not generate enough profit to keep going. If it weren’t for the support of their parents, her sisters’ business may have gone under. She took to Instagram to speak out about the PPP, and shed some light on the reality that many Americans may not see.
