DUBLIN, Ga. -- Rebecca Sanchez from Dublin is an entrepreneur!

In March, she and her family started a garden, planting 8 to 10 plants.

One of her plants was a loofah plant. 

There was an excess of the plant and Rebecca thought of ways she could make it of value.

In August, she took to the internet and researched ways to get the most use of out the loofah. Then the EZ-Scrub Loofah Soap business was born!

Rebecca has sold her products across the U.S. and locally at farmer's markets.

Rebecca is one of 4 entrepreneurs who will pitch their businesses and be coached by Heavy D from Discovery Channel's 'Diesel Brothers' and philanthropist and founder of SageWorks, Brian Hamilton.
