This loan will help Maruf be able to produce his wholesale retail items locally within the U.S. to eliminate international shipping costs and contribute more to his community.
Originally from Bangladesh, Maruf always had dreams of establishing his own business. In 2008, Maruf opened Aadore International LLC., a storefront retail business that sells souvenir, novelty and home décor items. Maruf personalizes the goods and distributes them at wholesale costs across the U.S. and Caribbean.
This loan will help Maruf purchase a laser cutting and engraving machine as well as a flatbed printer. By having these machines at his business location in Kissimmee, FL, Maruf will be able to produce and personalize new products himself, instead of outsourcing the work and shipping the items from China.
Maruf hopes to grow his business to help create jobs for his local community and provide for his family.
