Joshua is a distributor of granite, marble, onyx, and other natural stones in Columbia, South Caroline. Joshua is a true expert and enthusiast of natural stones. He considers them “amazing creations of nature” with very real and practical use. He started his business nine months ago after he realized there was no other distributor in the city. Although Columbia is a small college town, there are many fabricators in the area excited to have a local distributor. He offers imported quality products at a good location for potential clients in the area, which has made fast growth of his company possible. The marble and other natural stones he sells are brought from Brazil, India, Nepali and Italy. Joshua’s only current employee is his brother, but he is hoping to hire one more person. Joshua enjoys the interaction with clients and helping them fill their needs. His business motto is “being the best, offering the best and demanding the best.” Joshua is asking for a loan to purchase warehouse equipment necessary to move and secure stones in safe and efficient ways. This will allow him to increase his inventory and cash flow. He will also use the funds to hire a new employee. Please help Joshua to grow his business!
