A loan of $4,500 helped to purchase a minivan for his pet food delivery business, so he can carry more cat and dog food.


Jerry's story

Jerry was born and raised in the city of Los Angeles. He has been an animal lover since getting his first dog as a pet at the age of 6. Over the years, Jerry has worked and volunteered with many non-profit organizations providing care for animals, particularly cats and dogs. He noticed that there wasn't a pet food delivery service for elders and other pet owners who have a difficult time accessing brick and mortar pet stores. He decided to open his own business to meet this need.

Jerry is a young man from an African-American community, who is trying to create opportunity for himself. By starting this business he hopes to achieve his dream for himself and his community. “I started this business because I enjoy working with dogs. [It's] something I like doing in my free time. But now I am looking forward to doing it as a full-time business,” says Jerry, the owner of "My Master’s Bestfriend, LLC". "But I will continue to work part-time at my current job. I will deliver the dog and cat food right to your house."

This loan of $4500.00 will help Jerry purchase a minivan for his business, so he can carry more cat and dog food. Jerry is working with PACE and Kiva because banks in his area do not lend to small businesses.
