Marcus Vinicius
Marcus came from Brazil with his wife and daughter around 13 years ago. While he was working in construction, he started cleaning pools on his days off for extra money. That is what inspired him to start his own business, Lyons Pool Services. He is now fully dedicated to pool cleaning and has been the owner of the business for nine years. He provides weekly cleaning services and maintenance to residential and private pools. If necessary, he also adds chlorine and treats the water to avoid mold and to reduce bacteria. He is currently managing around 90 pools each month.

His goal is to grow the company by acquiring more contracts and to be able to hire employees to help him. His motivation for his hard work is providing for his family and helping his daughter with college tuition. Marcus is asking for a loan to purchase new equipment. With new equipment Marcus will be able to employ a greater number of staff therefore increasing the number of contracts that he is able to handle each month. Help Marcus grow his business and start generating new jobs!
