A native of Florida, Charles founded his clearing, maintenance, and landscaping company over six years ago in his Florida community. He provides his service to everyone in this rural community and has gained private property owners as well as commercial landowners as clients. Charles is extremely proud of how far he has been able to expand his home-based business thus far, but knows that it has the potential to grow even further. He admits that one of his hardest struggles at this time is getting the word out to his rural community, to make them aware of the service he is providing. In addition to being the sole proprietor of this landscaping business, Charles also works in IT to support his family. There is much potential for his business to grow, but Charles does not have the assets to foster this growth. This loan would be used to support this growth by replacing old equipment, expanding marketing and creating a website, and gathering inventory for future jobs.
