Total loan: $3,000


Salem, OR, United States / Services

Jose's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped be able to afford equipment made for a professional (lawn mower, blower, tools) and new uniforms, which help me build my image in the community.

Jose's story

I grew up in Mexico, and came to the USA about 20 years ago. Life was very different and difficult. I left my home in the search of a better life and began in California working in construction. My dad was my inspiration, he had many businesses. He had bakeries in Mexico and the USA. I had planned on following in his footsteps. I began my entrepreneurial path by accident. I had always wanted my business but it just seemed too difficult, and my limited English did hold me back. For the last few years, here in Salem Oregon, I was a cook in a Chinese restaurant. My dream is to be able to better support my wife and myself. I don't need to have a big business but it would be great to see a fleet of trucks with my logo and be able to train others to do what I do.
