Although his family, home and business were all affected, Bob fought on. He is still rebuilding, but has succeeded in keeping his business running while employing four workers. Unfortunately, Bob is unable to bid for many big-ticket contracts because he lacks a Bobcat loader. With this piece of equipment, his business can take off and he can even take part in Sandy rebuilding contracts.
He will use this loan to purchase a used Bobcat.
