Ebel's story

Ebel is starting a retail company based in Los Angeles, California. The company will design and manufacture the Reggaeton clothing brand and various accessory products. The clothing line reflects the hottest and trendiest new musical phenomena Reggaeton (R) Lifestyle, a blend of reggae and rap. The clothing retail hopes to expand this trend through its store. Ebel is looking for a microloan to fund its clothing inventory.

Ebel's narrative on his background: "I was born to hard working parents, my father a mechanic and mother, a seamstress. The family migrated to Los Angeles, California, in the early 80's. In the US, my father continued to work as a mechanic. My mother opened her start up apparel manufacturer as a sub-contractor, doing work to various brands.

In late 1990, I was exposed to a brand new genre of music named Reggaeton (a mixture of tropical beats with rap lyrics). I noticed that this music united Hispanics from different countries together. No other music genre had done [this] before. I envisioned a brand which caters to Americans of Latin American decents and Latin worldwide. Since, I am a proud owner of the trademarked Dog log and the registered Reggaeton® brand. I have established connections in the music industry that I [hope will be] extremely helpful to market my brand. I have a strong following from young millenniums. I hope to see my apparel designs in major retail stores across the United States and the world. We are the brand of the future."
