Jose
Jose Luis, originally from Mexico, started renting moon bounces in late 2012 with his own funds, and currently has five bounces. (For more information about this emerging business, please visit his website: mydreambounce.com.)

MD Dream Jump is a bonded, licensed and insured company, renting bounces to different families and kids’ parties across the greater Washington area. Since this business demands time mainly during the weekend, Jose Luis is currently maintaining his full-time job, but he is looking forward to being full-time focused in developing MD Dream Jump.

MD Dream Jump is requesting a $6,000 loan to improve the product offering and increase the business revenues with the following acquisitions:

Two additional bounces, to satisfy the increasing demand and to add more variety, since many prospective clients are asking for “cars- and Rangers-themed bounces” for older boys. Currently, he carries only Disney-themed bounces.

Chairs and tables to rent, since clients are permanently asking. This will add value (convenience) to the current business offering and will generate some marginal income as well. He is planning to buy chairs and tables.
