Edwin has decades of experience as a landscaping professional, but he always worked for somebody else or on the side. Recently, Edwin decided to officially become a business owner and his own boss. His love of gardening led him to create his landscaping business, Adair Enterprise, and continue to provide quality lawn services to his customers.

Living in Memphis, Tennessee his entire life, Edwin has made many friends and many professional contacts. Most of his business stems from these friendships and his attention to detail when working on a lawn. He firmly believes in the quality of his work and providing the best customer service.

With the spring season here and summer fast approaching, Edwin is ready for an increase in business. The funds from Accion Texas Inc. allowed him to purchase modern and more efficient lawn mowers, fuel for his machines, and to create cash flow for his business. Edwin was able to become an independent business and create Adair Enterprise a lot faster with his loan from Accion Texas Inc.

Without the help of Accion, Edwin would not be able to purchase all these items for his business or take on larger properties to landscape and maintain.

His plan is to continue working hard for his customers and provide quality service for his community. Edwin strongly believes in customer service and believes his business will grow because his work speaks for itself. His main source of marketing is word of mouth and he is confident that more customers are just one yard away.
