Married couple Lucas and Tammy own Rock Surfaces Inc, a home-based company that has been in operation since February 2009. The business manufactures and installs marble and granite counter tops. Tammy runs the finances while Lucas manages the jobs and installation. They provide their services to private individuals and businesses alike.

This loan will help Lucas purchase the equipment necessary to contract fewer services from LC Marble Granite, enabling him to increase his profit, along with building credit. In particular, he would like a fork lift that he can use to move the counter tops at job sites, a bridge saw and an air compressor.

The couple lives with their daughter and Tammy’s mother. Lucas continues to send remittances to his mother and younger sister in Brazil.
