A loan of $10,000 helped to purchase a truck.

Mario's story

Help Accion fund a rain shield gutter entrepreneur in Miami Florida! After immigrating to the United States from Colombia, Mario transitioned from job to job in the construction industry, until establishing his own company in 2007. While on the job working for others, he realized the frequency that gutters and shutters had to be replaced due to the inclement weather conditions in South Florida. This realization would guarantee any quality business in this arena a steady clientele. With the creation of Rain Shield Gutters, a company that specializes in the installation of gutters and shutters for private and commercial properties, Mario not only found a niche but also accomplished a dream.

Mario wakes up every day with a smile on his face because he feels that his work is meaningful to communities in South Florida. As he states, “I am proud to say that my business does not only help provide for my wife and son, but it also creates three jobs that are an important support to my employees’ families”. Most importantly, Mario puts his heart in every single job.

Mario has seen a significant growth in demand for his services in the past year. A loan from ACCION will help Mario to purchase another vehicle, which will allow him to mobilize his workers to more sites, which in turn means that the business can take on a greater number of jobs.
