Working Solutions Financed Entrepreneur Lands a Spot in the Heart of Marin

SAN RAFAEL, CA; February 8, 2013- 
Working Solutions, a nonprofit microlender who recently opened an office in San Rafael, is celebrating the success of recently funded Marin County businesses. The most recent business, Spot on Square, provides high-end, eco-conscious furniture for children and adults.


Owners Robert and Nicole Springer approached Working Solutions to obtain capital to expand their product line and grow their inventory. Spot on Square obtained a $45,000 loan plus five years of business advising at no cost. Spot on Square has seen a surge in demand recently due to favorable mentions in Buyer’s Guide, Pregnancy, and Parents Magazine. You can find their products in national retailers and online at


“Providing capital to businesses in the Marin County is what Working Solutions does best. We see our services as a growth engine and resource center for entrepreneurs and businesses in the North Bay,” said Laurie O’Hara, Working Solutions’ North Bay Business Development Officer.


Working Solutions has seen an increase in demand for capital and resources recently. Working Solutions saw volume quadrupled in the first quarter of the fiscal year from the previous quarter. Over 8,000 entrepreneurs have been educated about access to capital and over 1,500 have received referrals to resources. Working Solutions has lent over $3.4 million to 138 entrepreneurs.
