New Year’s resolution: be more efficient and increase capacity

The New Year’s resolution is a common tradition around the world. In the new year, many of us look to our past experiences and strive to better ourselves.

The Latino Business Center is coming into the new year following a very successful 2016. In the fourth quarter of 2016 alone, we placed 22 loans to Latino business owners totaling $342,100. We trained 214 individuals through workshops and roundtables across the state, and provided counseling to 94 clients on 394 occasions. That’s a lot of holiday season cheer.

Our resolution for 2017 is to serve our clients even better. We will meet new challenges and seek opportunities to be more efficient and increase capacity. We aim to set a new record for lending in 2017, keeping up our trend of steady improvement over the last few years.

As 2017 begins, our past successes drive our resolution to keep working hard for you.
