Alexandre opened his own painting company in Weymouth, MA, over a year ago with many clients residing in the South Shore. He has kept his business home-based and informal but has continued to grow due to the quality of work that he has provided to his clientele. In addition to running his own business, Alexandre also is still working with another painting company as a sub-contractor. The purpose of this loan is to purchase more equipment for both of his endeavors. He also would like to use this loan to continue building credit.
