This loan will help Diego expand his pet salon business.

Diego moved from his native country, Colombia, to Florida in 2010 with a passion for animals and the dream of beginning his own business in the U.S. Only a few months after arriving in a new country, Diego began Iron Pet Grooming Salon LLC, a storefront business that provides pet salon services including grooming, washing, teeth cleaning and tick treatments. Customers can also bring in their pets for the “You Wash” self service, where customers are able to wash their own pet while using Diego’s shampooing products and specially designed wash tubs.

Now looking to expand his pet salon, Diego needs a loan to purchase a business vehicle and additional equipment, and to pay for marketing to help attract more clients.
