After leaving Mexico, Mariana and her husband brought their children to California in search of a better life and brighter future. With their prior careers and qualifications nearly inconsequential here in the US, they searched hard for employment opportunities and soon started working in the cleaning and construction clean-up business. After working ten years for other companies, starting from the bottom and working their way into managerial positions, they decided to start their own business, Genesis Clean Services.

Now, several years after opening, they have expanded their services, created jobs, and most importantly, taught their children about hard work and responsibility. Overcoming language and cultural barriers, they embraced the opportunities presented to them and rallied around their family to bring those dreams of a more successful future to realization.

They were recently offered an amazing business opportunity and are in need of financing to purchase a carpet cleaner to fulfill a new, large contract. The impact of this Kiva loan will ensure the stability and growth of their company for years to come.
