Honoring a Business Owner's Success
Recently a Self-Help member and borrower, Nana Manso, received the Outstanding Achievement Award in Construction during Minority Enterprise Development Week in Durham, NC. Mr. Manso is the owner of Skyrock Construction, a licensed general contractor specializing in concrete construction works of all kinds.
We've been impressed with Mr. Manso's persistence and vision since his first loan with us in 2008. In the years that followed, Skyrock has grown into a multi-million dollar business with 23 full-time employees, and we've made several more loans to this great business. Find out more about Mr. Manso, his business philosophy and the Small Business Administration (SBA) 504 loans we offer.

In her remarks, Ms. Harrington discussed the need to rein in the abusive practices of the student loan servicing industry and urged members of the committee to pass reforms that allow student borrowers easy access to affordable repayment plans.
South Carolina Retreat Includes Service with a Mission
At a recent retreat, Self-Help staff from South Carolina and western NC gathered in Greenville, SC for a business meeting, and they also prepared donations for a local ministry that helps people without homes. Meanwhile, many of our branch staff in other locations also took time to volunteer in the community. Thanks to all of our branch staff for your service every day!
