Jose came to the US from the Dominican Republic over twenty years ago. He has had ample experience working for others as a cook and selling groceries, but now he is ready to pursue his dream of running his very own business.

Last month, he opened De Lo Mio Restaurant, a Dominican restaurant in Perth Amboy, New Jersey. As a startup, he faces the challenge of establishing his brand and meeting his targets for revenue. However, Jose is confident that his experience, along with help from a microloan, will give him the tools needed to succeed.

Jose will use this loan to buy furniture and food inventory for De Lo Mio Restaurant.
