Eduardo came to the United States from Cuba in 1988. After spending years learning the trade, in 1995 he became the proud owner of Atlantic Dry Cleaners, a reputable dry cleaning business.

Eduardo's company has even had a military contract. He says, "To be a part of the government contractors serving the military bases such as the Homestead Air Force Base and United States Southern Command has been the greatest opportunity that I've had in running my business so far."

His company currently has three employees, including his wife and they have been able to build solid clientele over the years.

Unfortunately, a few years ago Eduardo was the victim of identity theft, which badly damaged his credit. His business is at the point where he needs to renovate and purchase new machines. Because of his credit situation, he has been unable to obtain the necessary loans to buy the equipment he needs to keep his business competitive.

Help Eduardo maintain his business of 18 years and continue to thrive with a loan!
