    Hi @BigHouSeEnterprises
    Jasreail, Thanks for sharing your story. It's great to hear you've secured some recent contracts with commercial clients--we know rapid growth like this typically requires a good cash flow. There are several options in the LA area, have you heard of TruFund, they are a Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) and could be able to offer you low-cost capital or other products to increase your cash flow. I'd be happy to pass along more info! I also invite you to visit our Venturize.org platform which features other resources on grant programs in multiple states/regions. Small business ownership isn't easy, and we know they are major job creators in this country. Thank you for continuing to build your dream despite the challenges & looking forward to connecting.
