“We have five kids and were struggling financially on teachers’ salaries. We needed a new opportunity to support ourselves, so we decided to start our own business.
After a lot of research, we came across the concept of mosquito control. There was a huge demand for this service where we live, and there weren’t any other businesses like ours. We started out two summers ago and doubled our revenue in the first year.
To keep up the pace and continue to succeed, we needed another van. We came to HFLS to help us finance the van and all of the equipment that goes with it. We’re also planning on hiring additional employees.
We are so excited to continue to grow our business thanks to the loan. Soon, the money we earn during the summers will support us for the whole year, and we’ll have much more stability in our lives.
It is tremendously empowering and rewarding to build something for yourself and succeed!”
