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

A loan helped us to create a website and buy an industrial vacuum to expand to clean offices.

Maria's story

I am from Mexico City. My husband and I made the decision to sell our house and leave office work to come to the United States in 2013 with the idea of starting a business here. The initial business idea and investment didn’t go well and after 2 years of trying to keep it, we decided to start again. At that time, I knew another woman, also named Maria, who decided to start the D&J Cleaning Services LLC company in 2015. I became her business partner. My business partner has a long history in the United States (since 2000). She is originally from Tlaxcala Mexico. Her first experiences were very bad where she received mistreatment, very low wages, and long hours of work. She formed her family with her husband, Efren, in 2002 with whom they have a daughter who is all her joy and her motor. When we met, taking advantage of her experience, our project began.
