Owning an equestrian facility has been a lifelong dream of Jacqueline McCroskey. Starting her riding career as a young child, working with horses on a daily basis was something she could only imagine. After graduating college with a degree in Equine Studies, she moved to Texas, where BCL of Texas helped her bring her dream to reality by providing lending capital for her purchase of the land that would soon become Needville Equestrian Farm.
A South Austin stalwart since 1998, everyone knows Willie Flores’ business on South 1st Street. When he needed a small loan for equipment and working capital, he approached BCL of Texas to see what we could do. A quick chat with one of our loan officers and not long after that Mr. Flores had the new tow truck he needed and was ready to grow his business.
Brice Hand had extensive experience in poultry farming and owned acres upon acres of land, but he needed help to make the most of it. Thanks to BCL’s assistance, he has used the SBA 504 Loan program twice to construct new hen housing with state-of-the-art energy efficient equipment, making Brice one of the largest poultry producers in his community and for all of Tyson Foods.
Tara Kuntschick had leased space for her beauty salon, Hair It Is, for years. Ready to find a place of her own, she began to work with the loan officers at BCL of Texas to increase her equity injection for a real estate loan. With combined financing from BCL of Texas and her local bank, she was able to purchase a charming new location and increase her services in the community.
There are many different kinds of business owners out there. There’s the salesman, the organizer, the independent do-it-yourselfer, and more. But the successful ones? They build a team that can wear all the hats. Just ask Jason Herrera, owner of ClearVue Networks, LLC, an information technology (IT) firm that in just the past five months has grown from 5 to 13 employees, a number which is likely to double before the end of the year.
With a focus on counties along the I-35 corridor, BCL of Texas has worked with businesses in cities across the state of Texas, from Dallas and Austin to small towns such as Rogers and Luling, TX. During the month of April, we are celebrating our commitment to supporting growing businesses that will create jobs to build economic vitality in rural communities across our state.
Adrian Paredes, owner of the Austin-based Tamale Addiction, was helped with two loans from the BCL Business Growth Fund. From pork pastor with pineapple and onions to vegan nopalitos and sweet guava tamales, Paredes has been able to learn from his customers and successfully diversify his product to meet new market trends.
When construction started coming together on Sandra Mayes’ new home, workers began to see what would become a familiar sight– Sandra herself, photographing the process and watching her home being put together piece by piece.
“It was an emotional ride but one I was ready to take,” says Sandra of the home buying process.
