After moving from Brazil 10 years ago, Valmir started working part-time informally cleaning houses and decided to make a home-based business out of it. Since the recession started, Valmir has struggled financially and no banks would lend to him despite his good credit history in the past. Besides the cleaning business, he has two part-time jobs and is working to give his family a better future. He heard about Accion USA through a local paper and decided to call—now he’s happy he did because the business is getting the cash flow it needs in order to formalize it. Valmir hopes to build his business and make it successful again.

This loan will help Valmir pay for new cleaning supplies and purchase more commercial and residential cleaning contracts. It will help him expand his clientele and offer better services to the community.
