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

A loan helped me to sustain our business and to pay the outstanding bills.

John's story

One day, I woke up early to be able to catch a flight from San Francisco International Airport (SFO). I tried to call several Airport Shuttle companies to make a RESERVATION for a long distance RIDE from the Sacramento Region to San Francisco Int'l Airport (SFO). There was none that was available . I ended up begging a friend to take me to the airport. This lack of affordable mode of transportation from the Sacramento Region to SFO made me to come up with an idea of starting a shuttle company to serve the low income people between Sacramento and San Francisco. In about a month form the inception of that idea, Elk Grove Airporter, LLC company was born. Since 11/28/2012 our new company has been growing in every year until March 2020, when the "Shelter-In-Place" order was announced by the California Governor because of the COVID-19. I am struggling to keep up with the payments of the company's bills because we have no more customers making any reservations. I love my company so much. I hope to be back in business when the "Shelter-In-Place" order is finally lifted.
