A loan helped finance new backhaul antennas to allow for faster more reliable Internet and expansion ability in rural Oregon.
I grew up in a small mountain town with a population of around 700 people. Dialup Internet was the town option. As a young child I had a natural Interest in computers and pursued knowledge of them on my own. In Junior High and High School I helped support the school's computer system. The school had a 1.5M T1 Connection for their Internet. After graduating High School I entered the work force after a term of college. I did computer work on the side for years while trying to get a computer field related job. Eventually I saw the same company that had provided the school's Internet where I grew up looking for a technician. I applied and have been in the Computer field since. With the skills I had acquired both on my own and provided by the job I was later able to enter the I.T. Field working for myself. To be able to utilize my given talents to help others while supporting my family is an amazing feeling that I hope to keep.
