Tuesday, February 23

We want to send a big thank you to all who attended our Negocios en Accion event on Tuesday, February 23rd! We couldn’t have done it without our partners at the Women’s Business Development Center, The Resurrection Project, and Mujeres Latinas en Accion. Thanks to them, our guests were able to learn more about the process of starting and maintaining a business.

We had more than twenty-five Latino small business owners in attendance, and three important topics were covered:

  • How to obtain access to capital (Accion Chicago)
  • Best practices for filing business tax returns (Women’s Business Development Center)
  • How to register your business (The Law Project)

An Accion loan officer and speaker at the event, Alejandra Ruales Doyle believes this event was impactful because, “it is often hard for [Latinos] to access the resources they need. Small business owners are extremely busy, and having access to multiple business resources opens a door for growth and success.”

Thanks again to all that attended and our community partners!
