Evan has been working in the carpet and flooring installation business for over 15 years. Evan’s strong entrepreneurial spirit has motivated him to continue to look for ways that he can strengthen and expand his business.
As many small business owners know, securing a small loan in the US can be challenging and sometimes impossible, especially without collateral. Evan has tried, without success, to secure a loan from a number of banks who generally don’t make such small loans. He feels fortunate to have found an organization that understands the needs of small businesses. This is his second time coming to Opportunity Fund for a loan that he is confident will greatly help his business.
Recently, Evan earned his contractor’s license and was able to secure the necessary insurance to enable him to provide start-to-finish services for home and business flooring needs. With the ability to do all types of floor installation and cleaning, Evan can build and maintain longer relationships with his clients and provide excellent service along the way.
With the loan, Evan hopes to increase the number of people he currently employs. To learn more about Evan’s business, check out Metro Carpet at http://www.MetroCarpet.com
