A loan of $2,175 helps Fernando to expand his client base to increase his profit margins.
Fernando is a dedicated entrepreneur. Originally from Brazil, he has lived in the United States for over 10 years with his wife and 2 children. For years he had worked long hours in the construction industry with minimal vacation time. Six years ago, he built up his pool maintenance business from scratch by purchasing a set of schedules of houses. Fernando is, and always has been, the sole owner, partner, and employee of Boca Blue Service, Inc, also known as “Nando’s Pool”.
What he enjoys most about being self-employed is a higher quality of life and flexibility. He envisions a time in which he can generate enough revenue to hire an additional staff member to do the pool maintenance, which would allow him to focus exclusively on managing the business.
