Abel is a truck driver with four years of experience in the trucking industry. He recently purchased a truck from his current employer to begin his trucking business, hauling construction materials from distributors to construction sites.
After finding ACCION Texas Inc. online, Abel applied and was later approved for a $5,450 loan. The loan allowed him to provide another form of income for his family who depend on his business too. The loan also helped Abel pay for business registration. He registered his business as "MAGA Trucking" and will operate it as a second job hauling gravel, dirt, sand and other base materials for construction purposes.
