Kevin is a go-getter. Four and a half years ago, Kevin said he started this business with less than $50. He says the amount of money a person has doesn’t matter. “It’s how bad you want it,” Kevin said.

Utilizing what little he had – a mop and some flyers – Kevin organized his business into a $60,000 enterprise. Today he offers a multitude of services for residential and commercial facilities, including complimentary trash removal, minor dish-washing, and bed making as part of general and deep cleaning service. View his website, for a complete list of services.

Based in Houston, Texas, P.’s Anointed Cleaning Service, offers “100 percent customer service,” Kevin said. As a previous employee of a couple of cleaning companies, Kevin said he understands the importance of client feedback and ensures that he as owner will be present at every project his company completes.

“Building clientele, I saw there was a need for a good company to come in and change some things that other companies do,” Kevin said. What sets his company apart, is that P.’s Anointed Cleaning Services follows through on its promises, Kevin said. “If I get a (job with a) company, I don’t want that company for two to three months, I want someone for 10 years down the line,” He said. “That’s what keeps your business running.”

Within his business, Kevin works with three other employees, one he hired recently. He said he hopes to hire more in the near future.

As the business continues to grow, Kevin sought help with financing through conventional bankers, who told him that he would be turned down. So he came to Accion Texas Inc. and through alternate criteria, was approved. “Accion gave me a chance,” he says.

Kevin used his loan to purchase a truck-mount carpet cleaner and make a down-payment towards a company van. With these tools, Kevin says he’ll be able to double his clientele.
