Julie Harleman, the owner of Maple Street Denim, has a lot of experience in the clothing industry. A couple of years ago, the denim store she previously managed had a fire and it was a major crossroad in her career, and she decided to recreate her career path by starting her own business. Maple Street Denim was born in August 2014 and is now serving the Oakland area.
“Everyone at Main Street Launch was super helpful and patient throughout the whole process. I worked with Adrian Gomez Zavala and he was so great about walking me through every step of the process. I would tell anyone applying for a loan through Main Street to use the resources they provide and not be afraid to ask questions when you’re confused. Everyone is there to help you and they will get you what you need.”
