James's story

James always knew he wanted to be his own boss. Years ago, when he became seriously ill, James decided to leave his accounting job and start his own health and life insurance business. With over six years of experience in the industry, James took this opportunity to work in a less stressful environment and pursue his dream.

Now with two offices, one based out of Clark and one out of Bloomfield, James’s business is thriving. Along with another business partner, who is soon retiring, James works with over 200 commissioned partners in the industry.

When his father passed away two months ago, James took the tragedy, like his previous illness, as an opportunity for change. The funds from this loan will help James’ business move into a new office and help purchase supplies, such as a fax machine, a copier, a computer, desks, and file cabinets.
