Richard's story

Richard is the proud owner of a small accounting and tax preparation business. He has been helping people and businesses in his community do their taxes since he graduated from college in 1977. Back when he was just starting, Richard spent most of his time meeting people in his community and cultivating referral sources to bring him new clients.

Richard's greatest success has been growing his business from serving clients in New Jersey to reaching clients in New York, Pennsylvania, and Connecticut. His largest difficulty, however, has been not being able to get access to capital required to invest in working capital needs for his business. He is currently seeking a loan to pay for marketing materials before tax season starts in the spring. A Kiva loan from you will help Richard promote his small business.

On top of his client work, Richard also works with and advises local bankers on accounting matters as another way to support local businesses. Although Richard works long hours, he is happy to be pursuing his dream as a business owner. Outside of work, Richard enjoys spending time with his two adult children and his two dogs.
