As the Hispanic business community continues to grow, there is a far greater need for capital, guidance, technical assistance and opportunities to enable Hispanic-owned businesses to reach their full potential.


The immediate, most important outcome of Hispanic business success is the creation of jobs and the enhancement of the quality of life for a substantial portion of Hispanic and non-Hispanic Illinois residents.
