Latino entrepreneurs and small business owners propel our economies, big and small, by leaps and bounds. Despite facing significant barriers in accessing capital, access to affordable healthcare and other essential benefits, Latino businesses continue to grow and strengthen communities. Still, without key investments in our country's physical and human infrastructure, minority-owned small businesses face greater disadvantages than their white counterparts in business growth. These types of investments would better allow Latino-owned businesses to offer competitive benefits to employees, increase procurements with the government and more, all while closing tax loopholes that put smaller businesses at a disadvantage.  

Small Business Majority's VP of Engagement, Xiomara Peña, will be joining a panel to explore the impact infrastructure investments have for the Latino community.
