Jose, 33, owns and is the sole employee of Final Touch Mobile Wash and Detail, a car wash business he began in his hometown of El Paso, Texas. Though he has only been in business for one month, Jose already has plans to expand his business and hire additional employees.
Knowing he would need extra business assistance, Jose turned to Accion Texas Inc. at one of their many business service workshops in El Paso.
He applied, and was approved for a $5,450 loan he is using to purchase a truck to enhance the presentation of his mobile car wash and to build local awareness of his business. Jose is happy with his loan and says without it, he would have been hindered in reaching certain business goals.
