This loan will help Denis purchase materials and tools to advance his flooring business.
Soon after Denis moved from Uruguay to Florida in 2000, he began working in the construction industry to support his wife, daughter, and mother-in-law. He picked up a quick affinity for flooring and has been working with tile, brick, stone and hard wood floors for the past 12 years. In December 2010, Denis decided to begin his own flooring company, Valentina Decorative Floors, offering affordable flooring products and installation. Denis attracts and retains many customers because of his unique business model—he brings the showroom to the customers’ homes, allowing his clients to select their ceramic, porcelain, stone and laminate flooring preferences without having to drive to a hardware store. He provides free in-home consultation and does not subcontract any of his work, ensuring clients that they will work directly with Denis from the first to the last day of the project.
In the last two years, Denis has received an overwhelming number of interested clients and he is looking to expand his services. This loan will allow Denis to purchase additional flooring products and necessary tools to grow his business.
