I would . . . like to thank you, Joe, for always being there to answer my questions.  Even after being in business for a while now, you make me feel . . . safe and comfortable coming to you with my plethora of questions!

Amy Dapkewicz

Amy Dapkewicz, owner of Carpet One of Redding, was considering the purchase of an existing business.  This was a large undertaking and she needed assistance with the process. Amy met with our loan specialist, Joe Rodola.  Together, they reviewed Amy’s financial situation.  Joe helped her create a two year financial forecast, assisted her with a business plan, and stayed with her through the long approval process.  A little over 8 months later, she received final loan approval and bought her new business.

A couple years later, when COVID-19 hit, Amy once again turned to the SBDC for the Paycheck Protection Program.  Once again, she received the funds she needed to keep going.
