This loan will help Jairo to continue to offer quality treatment for pets.

Jairo, originally from Colombia, has always cared for animals. After working in veterinary hospitals for many years, Jairo saw the need to offer the same quality treatment found at hospitals, but at clients’ homes instead. In 2007, Jairo began his own business, Chien Inc, a home-based company that both sells pet products and provides veterinary care in the comfort of clients’ homes. Over the last six years, Jairo has built a large clientele base and a strong reputation by word of mouth, and he is now looking to expand his business to be able to take on more pet patients.

Jairo will use this loan to purchase and update medical equipment, to establish a webpage, and to pay for his own marketing and advertising. With this loan, Jairo hopes to gain more clients while being able to continue to offer superior care to his customers and their pets.
