Waldy moved from his home in the Dominican Republic to the States ten years ago. In 2006, he began working in construction as a carpenter, and he gained administrative and management skills. Earlier this year, he put those skills to use and started his own construction business.

Based out of Union City, Waldy’s construction business is small with less than seven employees. Waldy would like to focus on better marketing his services around New Jersey and expanding those services to compete with bigger companies.

Waldy wants to demonstrate responsibility through this small loan in order to apply for larger loans in the future. The funds will be used specifically to advance the costs of labor and materials, such as power tools, which is necessary in order to bid for larger projects.
