Marlon has a heart for entrepreneurship and the educational background in management to make any business venture that he embarks on a sure success. In 2007, Marlon decided to combine these two aspects of his life and open his own business in Virginia. The business that he created was an all encompassing furniture rental, rent-to-own, and direct sale retail store.
Currently, he has four employees, two of whom are members of his family. He says that this is one of the most important aspects of his business. He loves the opportunity the business gives him to employ individuals in his community, especially members of his family. The store has been very successful since its opening and recently Marlon moved locations to a bigger space. However, with this move, there has been a slowing of business because many people do not know the new location. Marlon would like this loan to advertise the new location and to increase his inventory to fill his new space.
