Arely is entering the world of an entrepreneur running a party supply business offering tables, chairs and moonwalks for rent in the Conroe, Texas community.
Originally from Matehuala, Mexico, Arely ventured to Accion Texas Inc. for a loan to begin her business. Now that she has applied and was approved for a $5,450 loan, Arely was able to create one full-time and two part-time jobs.
Without the loan, the 27-year-old would not have been able to purchase items to rent out, and would therefore, not be in business at the moment.
