Originally from Cuba, Tania came to the United States in search of better opportunities. She dreamed of becoming a self-sufficient entrepreneur and leaving a legacy for her children and family. In 2006, Tania and her husband started a janitorial services company. Since then, they have purchased a franchise and contracts with different organizations. The contracts have allowed Tania to grow the business through referrals and the opportunity to provide cleaning services to a wide variety of companies. Tania’s business, Tanilan Services, has been able to hire two employees while continuing to expand. In the beginning, Tania faced the biggest challenge of not being able to find financing to grow her business.
This is Tania’s second loan with Accion USA. She will use this loan to expand the franchise and purchase more contracts which will bring in more income.
“This will allow us to reach out to a wider community, increase our presence, and spread the word about Tanilan Services.”
