With more than five years of experience as a truck driver, Jose finally decided to go into business for himself in May 2013. With his own truck, Jose’s business allows him to obtain lease contracts, hauling whatever is needed according to the business he’s working with across the 48 states.
Working with freight brokers, Jose stays busy finding projects to complete, but with the extent of his driving, he needs extra funds to maintain his truck. Jose ventured for a loan at his bank, which then referred him to microlender Accion Texas Inc.
Once he applied and was approved for a business loan, Jose was able to drive worry-free doing what he loves for a living.
