North Carolina Client – The Cruz family
The Cruz family started Envision Construction in 2014, a residential general contracting and home building company in North Carolina. Maribel and Raul Cruz are originally from Mexico and have been living in the U.S. for the past three decades. As they were trying to find a house that suited both their son’s disability and their family’s daily needs, they ended up using their experience to build their own perfect home. Being able to have a space for their son where he feels empowered gave them both peace of mind and helped them realize the need for this service in their community. Therefore, they began taking on residential projects. Backed by his experience in the commercial construction scene since the late 1980s, Raul took the lead to work on the construction aspect of the business while Maribel oversees the finishes. Together, they are able to offer their expertise to their diverse group of clients, from first-time buyers to families with accessibility needs.
Recently, Prospera supported Envision Construction with access to capital assistance to secure an Emergency Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) and a Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan, as well as PPP loan forgiveness. Prospera also provided Envision Construction with grants for branding and social media presence development and a business plan to enhance their business operations. With these tools, the Cruz family is able to advance Envision Construction’s corporate image, online presence, and improve their community outreach to communicate its niche services more effectively.
