Terry's story

Growing up on the East Coast, Terry generally had a good upbringing, although tough at times, due to hardships involved with the passing of both of his parents. He currently resides in Los Angeles, CA, where he has plans to open his business and eventually expand on an international basis.

Terry's entrepreneurial spirit was shaped by his first job after graduate school. This particular job required him to sell investment products to individuals and small businesses through his own resources. With the skills he gained, Terry has over 13 years of expertise as a financial advisor, obtaining his Certified Financial Planner designation in 2009. Terry is also a licensed Series 7 and 66 CFP, currently working for Kelly Services.

The Kiva loan will help Terry start his financial consulting business, Minority Capital Advisors, helping clients map out their financial plan based on their unique circumstances. With his new company, Terry will also be providing educational workshops for groups seeking advice on investments and personal finances.
