This loan will help Vanessa expand her janitorial and emergency restoration business that is focused on using sustainable and green products.

Vanessa grew up in Colombia watching her parents struggle for financial security. After moving to Florida 10 years ago, Vanessa decided to follow in her parents’ footsteps by working in the cleaning industry, but she decided to do so in a new way: by being her own boss. In 2007, Vanessa opened her own company, Iza Environment Corp., a business specializing in commercial janitorial cleaning and sanitizing services as well as disaster restoration. Living in Florida where flooding, rain, and hurricanes affect businesses each year, Vanessa realized the need to offer reliable and immediate emergency response cleanup services to her local community. She has a crew of 42 employees and has contracts for local office buildings, distribution plants, airports and military bases.

Her business is growing quickly and she is now looking for a loan to purchase additional cleaning equipment and supplies to keep up with the high demand for her company’s services.
