Two young men starting a business

I am Jacquice Stukes, a father, and a future entrepreneur.   My partner is Hakeem Mills. I have had a dream to get into the trucking industry for almost 2 years. I was stuck in a career wormhole until February 2020. I parted ways with my management job to pursue becoming a truck driver and truck owner. After leaving them, I weighed my options to get my cdls, I tried to get a grant but they ran out of funding. Then, after the lengthy process, other options and cdl school was closed due to covid and quarantine. During quarantine I found out that my best friend had the same interest and we decided to team up and kick a company off by October.  I was able to obtain my cdl on August 28, 2020. I paid for school out of pocket with my last savings to help achieve my dreams. By Sept 1, 2020 we set up our llc. We established a little business credit and created our logo, website, and have bank accounts in place. The only thing we are lacking is funding for our first truck. After I got my cdl, I had delays and setbacks on the job I had lined up. My friend got me a job with his company and they allowed him to train me. It took them a little longer then expected to clear me to work for them. Then he end up having issues he need to clear up to keep his license from being suspended. That set us back about two weeks. I am starting by October 7, 2020. We are lacking funds and funding due to me not having employment for a month and not having the funds for an adequate down payment. If we reach 10,000, we can get our conpany off the ground. I already have all my money invested, my partner is already invested and he has his half of a down payment.
