Today Accion funded an existing wholesale business in Miami! Bernardo is the proud owner of B&B Logistic. His business distributes food to grocery stores, mini markets, laundry mats and dry cleaning businesses. Hear what his clients say about him: “Bernardo provides excellent service, he anticipates our needs, is always on time and most of all shows a great level of professionalism. I feel that I can trust him and that he is of the highest integrity”. Also hear what his ex–manager says about him: “Bernardo always had the heart of an entrepreneur, when he worked for us we could see this, and for that reason we pushed him to pursue the dream of owning his own business. We pushed him to become a wholesaler and take advantage of the many years in the field. This is probably the key to his success.”
Bernardo started his business with years of experience in wholesale distribution. For many years, he worked for a company called REX, a local wholesaler of various products. After many years of working for this company, as mentioned in the quote above, the owners pushed him to form his own corporation, and to use his experience and heart to start his own business. He has had tremendous success in a short period of time. He quickly established a steady flow of clientele in South Florida. An Accion loan will help Bernardo to purchase inventory and more importantly to establish his personal credit. Bernardo needs to build his credit to be able to pursue further financial opportunities in the future.
