A loan of $2,000 helped to purchase inventory for pool repair.


Suren's story

Livingwater Pool Service, located in Fresno, CA, is a sole proprietorship that performs general pool cleaning and repair services. It was established in 2011 after Suren lost his jobs as a smog technician with a local shop, and driver for a medical transport company. Suren realized that there was an opportunity in pool service due to Fresno’s location in the heart of the Golden State where the winters are short and mild, and outdoor swimming temperatures are prevalent nine months out of the year.

Suren is seeking $2,000 for working capital to purchase parts and supplies. He gets a lot of repair jobs in winter and spring and the funds will help him with larger jobs that require him to buy parts up front.

Suren is an entrepreneur at heart. After losing both jobs in the recession, he started the pool cleaning and repair service business using his savings to acquire a pickup truck and tools. Suren works hard to build his customer base and is proud that so many of his customers are referring their friends and family members to him. He is unable to get a business loan from local banks.

Suren and his wife came to America as refugees from Armenia in 2005. They have three children ages 9, 8 and 6.
