Jose has been in the United States for ten years now. He decided to move from his home in Brazil to find better job opportunities. Back in Brazil, he spent most of his life doing house repairs and construction, something he does very well. Three years ago, he started his own construction company, operating the business formally for the last year. The company provides general repairs for residential and commercial buildings, painting, installation of granite countertops, and other services. Since he has two sons back in Brazil who still rely on him for financial support, it is important to Jose that his business is thriving. His vision for the future is to gain more contracts in the community and generate employment opportunities through the business.
Jose will be using this loan to purchase construction materials for future projects, while building his credit at the same time.
