Since childhood, Lara Babalola held an interest in fashion. When she was 16, she dreamed about opening a women’s clothing store.

In 2011, MCCD helped make Lara’s dream come true with the launch of Diva’s Ave Boutique in Brooklyn Park. The boutique, a retail store for women’s clothing, shoes, and accessories, opened its doors at the recently-constructed Shops at Village Creek. This new development is part of the city’s emerging commercial district.

Working together with the Brooklyn Park Development Fund Limited Partnership and WomenVenture, MCCD provided start-up financing for Diva’s Ave. This was also the first partnership loan as part of the collaboration between MCCD and the City of Brooklyn Park to encourage small business growth.

As customers peruse her store for the latest trends, Lara now wears a big smile proud of her accomplishment.
