Wislet is a certified electronic engineer with a passion for his work. Originally from Haiti, he gained his education and experience from years of working in the telecommunications field. For the past seven years, he has been working on projects for major network providers, such as T-Mobile and AT&T.

Wislet’s specialty is building cell phone towers. He needs money to execute contracts that cost upwards of $30,000 to secure. Reliable vehicles and labor are expensive. Though the scope of work differs with each contract, crews typically require at least four people, and at least one must be a certified climber. The money from this loan will go toward these expenses.

Looking forward, Wislet hopes to hire five teams of at least five people to work with him. His goal is to help people by providing more jobs and allowing them to support themselves and their families.
