I am sorry, but your question is not very clear. If you are asking a mentor to help fund your business. The answer is No, we are not a source of funding. Your profile implies that you have reached out to family and friends which is the best place to start for funding your business. Here are a few links to help you with this process:

I would avoid a loan for raising capital unless you absolutely positively know with certainty that you can capture customers. When you start out, it is difficult to get customers and have sales. Without customers and sales, you have no way of paying back the loan. This is why it is best to start with your own resources as much as possible and get to first customer without raising money from a lender.

Your profile indicates that you are a POS business. If this is correct, location is very important to driving sales transactions. Try a new location and see if this helps increase your sales. If possible, you might try and sell online from social media platforms. Here are some links to help you out:

The real solution to a lack of funding is to somehow sell more. Sales is what cures most business problems. Good luck.
