Well, I think that may make a difference. I am going to give you the perspective of U.S. immigration
so that you can understand the pitfalls in this situation. You won't like it, but I have to tell you the truth of the matter to keep you out of trouble and I hope you understand this.
Technically, what you are planning to do is possible, but the U.S. perspective is different. The work visas
available are not to help you. They are to help the U.S. Specifically, they are to help U.S. companies that cannot find U.S. workers because none are available or willing to do certain jobs and the non-U.S. workers are supposed to be paid the same as U.S. workers because if they could get paid less, then the U.S. companies would rather employ non-U.S. workers than U.S. workers. Now why do I tell you this? Because when you present your plan to USCIS, the officer reviewing the case will have that mind set. That officer will be thinking, "Ok, how does this help us, the U.S.? Will he be creating jobs for other U.S. workers, not just himself and maybe his family? With such a small investment, he can barely support himself. What makes me think that he just won't go belly-up in 6 months?"
So while technically you can do what you are planning, the chances of denial are high. You should have more money or at least be prepared to dazzle the officer with a business plan that shows that you would be successful in less than 5 months and even better, that your business will create jobs for U.S. workers within a year or shortly thereafter. If not, the chances of approval I don't think will be high.
So try to get more money as an investment and set up a great business plan to show that you will be putting U.S. workers to work very soon.
