Jonathan's story

Music is a key component of social gatherings and venues with its ability to create an enjoyable environment for its listeners. Fourteen years ago, Jonathan committed himself to helping others enjoy themselves by pursuing a career that he, himself, enjoyed. He started his own DJ business because he loved both playing music and “knowing that people had the time of their lives after I am done playing music.” Originally from Guatemala, Jonathan has lived in the U.S. for 28 years. He works independently, and lives with his wife and four kids. His business allows him to support his family and has allowed him to purchase a home. However, the slow economic activity of 2007-2009 took a toll his business. He hopes to use this loan to purchase more equipment and expand the services of his DJ-ing company to include karaoke. This will enable him to get more business and increase profits. In the future, he wants to be a full-time DJ and grow his business so that his kids can join him.
