In 2013, a local entrepreneur visited Self-Help Credit Union for help with financing; she was hoping to expand the business she'd opened in 2009. This entrepreneur is Michelle Holland, and her business is Eagle Bus Service, a local company dedicated to providing student transportation for Charlotte and surrounding school areas.
Since then, Eagle Bus Service has more than quadrupled in growth and now offers their services to public, private and charter schools. And today, nearly 10 days into Small Business Month, we're honored to feature Michelle and her business as today's #31DaysofBiz business spotlight.
