Donald's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped son expand his father's business through an app that will create jobs for young men in the community.
Since the age of 9, I've watched my dad clean cars for a living. This is where I learned work ethic and how to communicate with people. I've seen the good and bad over the past 15 years working with him. My dad used his business to give people jobs and mentor young men. My passion for the business came through watching my father mentor young men and give them jobs. Now with Covid on the rise and business turning into online and delivery services. We can now make this business accessible to teenagers and young adults. I'm always motivated by seeing people achieve their goals and dreams, and I know that this business integrated with the app will help people become their own boss and reach their full potential. I've grown up in a household where our goal is to help people by any means necessary. I've always wanted to make my dad proud by giving back to others using the gifts and tools that were given to me. My father is getting to the age where he can't physically do the work anymore. I want to be the solution to the problems that are plaguing this world, and one of those problems is financial lack. I have recently taken the lead on the business, and we are surrounded by a team of people that believe in us as people. We have customers that have become almost like family and this is due to the honesty and integrity my dad has carried through the years. I want to be able to carry that same legacy for years to come.
