Alejandro has worked many years in the commercial trucking industries and made a decent living for himself and his family but always felt the urge to take charge of his own business.
Alejandro is the sole provider of his household and began looking for ways to cut expenses. He spent hundreds of dollars monthly leasing a commercial truck but needed a way to begin buying a truck outright for his Dallas business, AS Trucks. After visiting local banking institutions and receiving denials, Alejandro turned to Accion Texas Inc.
The loan from Accion allowed Alejandro to begin investing in ownership of a commercial truck and eventually becoming the sole owner. He now pays less per month to use his vehicle daily and contributes more financially to his family. Alejandro continues to work and haul for commercial businesses and looks forward to owning his own commercial truck and adding more routes to take on for his business.
