Algernon Shaw hard at work

Success Story: Shaw Signs, Gulfport, Ms

​Algernon Shaw, a homeownership client, was a young entrepreneur who always dreamed of using his artistic talent to provide for his family and become self-employed. Mr. Shaw began designing and selling signs through his solely-owned company, Shaw Signs (a Mississippi certified Minority-Owned and Operated Business Enterprise) in 2010. Through the assistance of Renaissance’s business loan financing, he was able to secure an equipment loan to produce enough income from sign sales to work full-time as his own employee. Thanks to the business loan, as well as prior assistance from Renaissance’s home-ownership program, he was able to meet both of his goals.
