Carlos’s dream is to open his own furniture showroom. After moving to the US from his native Columbia, he worked for a company that builds and finishes all types of wood furniture, cabinets, floors, etc. Carlos fell in love with the job and decided to work for himself as a wood craftsman. He opened a carpentry business out of his home in Florida almost three years ago. Carlos is proud that he is able to support his family through his hard work while doing something he loves. He hopes this loan will enable him to expand by hiring employees, opening a store-front, and let him make a greater contribution to his community.

This loan from Accion USA will allow Carlos to build the credit history he needs in the United States in order to formalize his business. He then can take the necessary steps to move from his home to a store-front location. Carlos says this loan will help him to obtain the tools he needs to showcase his excellent work and access a greater number of clients.
