Having studied civil engineering, it was only natural for Jose to pursue his passion for construction and design. In pursuit of social and economic stability, he opened Vittorium Design in August 2012. He sells affordable energy-efficient windows and protection from hurricanes. He currently runs his business out of a virtual office space, where he is able to receive mail and rent hourly room space to meet with potential clients.
The biggest challenge Jose faces is expanding his marketing campaign to reach more people, especially those who do not want to place a 50% deposit. This loan will help him to purchase more inventory and increase marketing efforts before the hurricane season hits, meeting the local demand for hurricane shutters.
Originally from the Dominican Republic, Jose has been living in the United States since 1982. He currently resides in Miami with his wife and two children.
