Victor has been in the freighting industry for almost two decades. Using his savings from years working as a truck driver, Victor went into business for himself almost 15 years ago, starting his company Victor J’s Trucking. Victor was hesitate at first to take this leap, but he's glad he did.
Victor was referred to Accion Texas Inc. for a loan by A+ Credit Union while he was seeking out the working capital he needed to purchase a trailer with greater storage capacity for his truck. The acquisition of the trailer has allowed Victor to deliver more freight to his clients in fewer trips, increasing the overall profits for his business.
