Travis J. is a partnering owner for 3G Contracting, a residential and commercial construction firm. 3G Contracting does everything from roofing, to paving, to indoor remodeling, just to name of a few of their specialties. After just two years in business, 3G contracting has already received over 300 commissioned projects.

The biggest difficulty 3G Contracting faces is maintaining its cash flow. After being denied a loan at a commercial bank due to insufficient credit history, Travis came to ACCION Texas-Louisiana for financing. This loan is helping Travis and his partner move two of their part-time employees to full-time, as well as helping them acquire another pickup truck for the business. 3G Contracting has five employees, three of whom will now be working full-time.

Running the business from a home office, Travis’ wife handles 3G Contracting’s administrative and clerical duties. With Travis and his wife both working full-time for the company, 3G Contracting supports four families. 3G Contracting’s goal for this year is to increase revenues by 30%.
