Ricardo has dreamed of becoming an entrepreneur his entire life and finally got the opportunity to live out this dream a few years ago. He worked for many years as an engineer in a company that was focused on the manufacturing of plastic goods. With this great experience and an understanding for the diversity of products that can be made from plastic and what goes into manufacturing them, Ricardo decide to start a business in this field. He decided to start a wholesale business that purchased and sold machines that were used for specialized plastic manufacturing. He saw no limits to his company and began selling domestically in the United States and internationally. He mainly sells to large companies and focuses most of his marketing to this kind of buyer. His business has seen significant growth since its founding and now employs three employees in addition to Ricardo. Ricardo wants to continue to see his company grow and wants to continue to provide for his family by doing something he loves. He would like to use this loan to purchase a larger inventory for resale and provoke growth.
