Eric's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped continue to grow rapidly as we will be able to upgrade our database and scheduling software system as well as "wrap" and properly equip our third Prius that we recently purchased.

Eric's story

I grew up in a small town called Centralia in Washington State. It was a great place to grow up, learn a good work ethic, and get a good education. The experience prepared me to leave for a “Big” city and get my college degree. My goal was to be a stockbroker; I worked for several brokerage firms during college. I obtained my degree in finance from Portland State University in Oregon and became a retail broker in Portland. After seven years, I transitioned into an institutional broker and helped some of the world’s largest mutual and hedge funds decide which stocks to buy and sell over a 16 year career. In 2007, I began to transition away from the brokerage world in favor of spending time with my family and focusing on community service. I became president of our local soccer club. We accomplished amazing things by working together, energizing our community, and developing goals that we worked together to achieve. We doubled the size of the club to 1500 players in just three years, creating many lasting relationships in the process. In 2011, my wife and I started Pest Solutions LLC. We are working hard to grow Pest Solutions aggressively. We currently operate in Oregon and Washington, but have aspirations to operate in all 50 states. Our goal is to be the best pest control company in the U.S., creating success for our partners, employees, the community, and our family. My personal goal is to demonstrate to our children that it’s ok to have a dream, pursue it with all you have, and achieve it along with all the benefits that come from that.
