Jose Maria
Jose Maria, originally from Brazil, first came to the United States with his wife 11 years ago. He has years of experience working in house repair and construction. Four years ago, he decided to open his own construction repair company that would allow him to be financially independent and provide for his two sons. His two sons are in high school. He is hoping to save enough to be able to send them to college. Leaving an established job and starting to work on his own was not easy for Jose Maria, but he is a hard worker who believes in his business. The company’s main services are painting, granite installation, interior renovation and replacement of windows. He wants to be able to increase his clientele and work on larger projects. He is asking for a loan to purchase construction material that would help him provide competitive prices and services, which has become the biggest challenge for his company. Help fund this start-up business. Help Jose Maria and his family succeed!
