We’re already know that COVID-19 has hit Black and Hispanic businesses hardest of all. It’s time to take action y dar nuestro granito de arena to support Black and Latina-owned businesses during this pandemic.
In a new report released by the JPMorgan Chase Institute, research found that Black and Hispanic businesses are very likely to not have the cash available to survive the pandemic. They estimate that they had fewer than 21 days of cash on hand to continue operations.
This is sad news when Black and Hispanic-owned small businesses are already severely under-represented in the country. We need these businesses to thrive. If they don’t get help, many of these businesses will not be able to make it.
Let’s help our hermanas!
I have gathered 5 Latina-owned businesses to support today. I have bought their products and I know you will love them too. Let’s support these mujeres to continue thriving and representing us.
