This loan will help Duber and Iviet expand their fine dining restaurant.

Duber and his wife, Iviet, moved from Venezuela to Miami three years ago. Almost immediately, the married couple began working to turn their passion for the food industry into a profitable business. In May 2010, they opened Uvas Restaurant, serving French and Mediterranean gourmet cuisine, located on Biscayne Blvd in downtown Miami.

The restaurant is seeing great success, and the couple is able to support their two children as well as both of their mothers living in Venezuela. Duber and Iviet are now looking to expand. They need a loan to purchase a luminous sign as well as new equipment which will help them increase production in order to better serve more guests.
