Cindy always aspired to be self-employed, and she saw her opportunity to do just that two years ago when she founded Cindy’s Coastal Cleaning. The area in which Cindy lives is a tourist hotspot and the businesses in the area were often looking for local cleaners to ensure their spaces were always tidy and ready for tourists.

Recognizing the opportunity, Cindy started her cleaning services business and focused on providing services to homeowners, hotels, and other businesses in the area. Now, after more than two years in operation, Cindy’s Coastal Cleaning is the go-to cleaning service provider for vacation home owners, rentals, hotels, and private homes in the area.

Cindy focuses on not only providing quality cleaning but also green cleaning. She uses only natural products to clean and even creates her own formulas if she cannot find an existing natural alternative.

In 2013, Cindy’s business experienced tremendous growth, but unfortunately, she did not have the capital necessary to keep up with that growth.

With your generous contribution to Cindy’s loan goal, she will be able to invest in an additional company vehicle, purchase new uniforms, hire and train new employees and purchase cleaning equipment like a carpet shampooer, vacuums, and a power washer.
