I am a 47-year-old man with paranoid schizophrenia ever since I can remember. I've been officially disabled and receiving state help for 10 years.

I tried to work regular jobs when I was younger but my disability always surfaced and caused me to get fired or into devastating situations that put my life at great harm.

Over the last few years I have this very good friend that has been helping me beyond anything I could ever imagine.

He has helped me with my everyday tasks making sure I get to my appointments on time and just being a friend by being there for me when my condition surfaces.

I never know when this can happen but when it does I need to be with someone who knows me and why I act out the way I do.

Some days I will not be able to go out of the house at all. I get tired of just being and I would like to have some purpose in my life.

My friend owns his own business and allows me to go with him some days just to have someone to ride along and talk.

My friend has agreed to help me become more independent and financially stable.

Although I'll have help, I still need some capital to work with because I must purchase my own equipment to work with to start up a small frozen beverage business.

This is a win-win situation because my friend has agreed to train me to work with these frozen beverages machines.

The cost of the machines is about $1,800 each and I will need a minimum of 20 machines to start. This means I'll need a grant of at least $36,000.

I know this is a lot of money but this business has great interest to me and therefore I know without a doubt I can make myself a success.
