Thank you for any consideration you may give to helping me achieve the dream I have worked for 19 years to achieve. Have you seen the AT&T commericals about Distributed Antenna Systems in large stadiums and how they optimize them and the ones about the nation's strongest LTE coverage? I actually do alot of that for them and for the other Wireless Service Providers as well. I own a very small company that has two techicians and myself working in the field for these customers on a daily basis. It's very tough to keep up with the changing equipment requirements when technologies change. But I manage. I make sure that my guys are paid and that I keep the company running. I'm getting by and that's ok with me. You'll never work harder for anyone than you will for yourself. After many years of being awarded the small projects that my bigger competitors don't want to bother with, I have been offered an opportunity that could change our lives and bring my company to the level I have worked so hard to achieve. Of course, this opportunity reaquires the purchase of more equipment that I do not currently have. But I have been assured that if I can secure the necessary equipment, I will receive a Purchase Order for the project. Therein lies the Catch 22. I have exhausted all of my available credit purchasing as much of the equipment as I can and have not paid myself in a month (which has put all of my personal finances in a bind) to buy another piece of equipment. I have approached several sources for a loan to secure the final piece of equipment that I need, an Anritsu S820E Site Master. All have said they'd approve a loan against the Purchase Order. However, the customer will not issue a Purchase Order to me until I have the necessary equipment. Neither side will budge. I have even showed my customer documentation backing up my claim that I can secure the financing if they issue the PO. I took the last of my savings and my wife even took a loan against her 401(k) to buy the last piece of hardware and put a deposit on the Anritsu S820E. So we are completely tapped out. My customer doesn't have to award the project until April 30th. So he's giving me until that date to acquire this last piece of equipment. As much as he wants to award this to me, business is business. If I don't have the equipment he'll have to award it to one of my competitors and it'll likely put an end to my company being invited to bid on projects of any substantial size. My guys and I have been together for many years and will always do what we have to do even if it means continuing on with the work no one else wants to do (somebody's gotta do it). As much as I'd love to win this for myself and to secure the future of my tiny company for several more years, I'd like to be able to do it for my guys. They have stuck with me through some extremley hard times and refused to give up on me even when it looked like the end of my company due to the state of the econonmy and customers cutting back on thier budgets. That, obviously, hit me alot harder than my larger competitors. I have foregone paying myslef many times to ensure they got paid. None of us is a spring chicken anymore but we work hard every time we put on the tool belt. Winning a big project would help me hire some younger guys to work with us and take some of the heavier work off of us older guys. I'm a disabled combat vet with a back injury. There are many days when I can hardly walk when the day is over. But I have alot of people depending on me so I do it without complaint. Any help you may be able to offer will be very greatly appreciated. If you can help me secure this last piece of equipment it will make such a great improvement in our lives that we'd all be grateful for the rest of our lives. And, who knows? It just may be your cellphone coverage that we help to fix!
