At Good Intentions Restoration, Zach focuses on masonry home improvement and restoration. When Zach completed his first construction job, he realized he enjoyed working within the field, decided to obtain his general contractor certification and become his own boss.
“I started working immediately and have been putting almost all my earnings back into the business,” he says. “I hope that the business grows big enough to where I can take on employees and market myself for historic homes and buildings, and specifically, masonry.”
It’s only been four months since Zach began working as a general contractor. He works alone and plans to grow his business to support himself and then, future employees. For the time being, Zach decided to contact a community partner, Thrive, which then referred him to Accion Texas Inc. After loan approval, he purchased a truck and tools to work on more jobs.
Zach says the loan will help him “build equity in my business and start saving money.” Without the loan, “my growth would definitely become limited,” he says.
Until he creates a website for the business, Zach invites potential customers to like his Facebook page here: http://on.fb.me/1eob6sb
