 CLIENT TESTIMONIAL

“…Thank you for the time you dedicated to enhancing my business plan and cost projections. I sincerely appreciate the key role you played in this process and I am extremely grateful for the service provided by EGBI…”

A hairstylist since 1990, Brenda Carrera graduated from EGBI’s Building Success Program in 2007 and began working on a business plan. Although she had to put her plans on hold, her entrepreneurial spirit did not allow her to give up on her dream. At the end of 2010, she was offered the opportunity of taking over the hair salon where she was working. In a time where small businesses have trouble getting financing, Ms. Carrera turned to EGBI for assistance. Through our loan packaging service, she received guidance on updating her business plan and financial projections. With a strong loan package, she was successfully approved by A+FCU for a term loan that allowed her to buy the business assets, remodel the location, and support her business operations for the first three months. Ms. Carrera’s own Hair Central Salon began operations in May 2011. She currently has five full-time employees and her annual revenue in 2011 exceeded $84,000.
