Yamile and her husband moved to the United States from Colombia in hopes of becoming entrepreneurs and controlling their own destiny in a new place. They opened a cell-phone store, VIT Services Corp, DBA VIT Wireless-Metro PCS in South Florida, Florida over three years ago and with its great store-front location in the midst of a very busy strip mall, the business has been able to grow at a steady rate. In addition to being the co-owner of VIT Service Corp, Yamile’s husband is also a part-time faculty member at the University of Miami.
The store now has three full-time employees and is looking to expand. Yamile hopes to franchise her business to other locations in the future, but for now is focused on creating the best atmosphere in her current location. This loan would be to help purchase new store displays to attract additional clientele.
