Bob is a proud, lifelong resident of the Jersey Shore with ample experience in construction. On October 12, 2012, he started his own business. Luck couldn’t have been worse—seventeen days later, Superstorm Sandy struck and wiped out everything Bob had.

Although his family, home and business were all affected, Bob fought on. He is still rebuilding, but has succeeded in keeping his business running while employing four workers. Unfortunately, Bob is unable to bid for many big-ticket contracts because he lacks a Bobcat loader. With this piece of equipment, his business can take off and he can even take part in Sandy rebuilding contracts.

He will use this loan to purchase a used Bobcat.
