SER Negocios Testimonials

Adrianne Johnson

AJ’s Mobile Gaming

“They also have different disabilities, so we want to build a business that, in turn, can help them offer job opportunities. SER NEGOCIOS can help me open those doors, and with the financial assistance they have provided, along with the mentoring and support, my vision is clear, my mind is focused, and we are ready to get after it.”

Albino Jose Garcia

Bino’s Flooring

“SER NEGOCIOS recognized that I needed to have a place from which to operate my company and helped me with rent. Plus, their team gave me an important hand in applying for a grant. Each of these alone is a critical make-it or break-it necessity, but all three are a lifesaver for my small business.”

Brisa Cortina

Gonzalez Tax and Insurance Services

“I know my business and my profession, but this is a very complicated process and takes time and money, which I must manage very carefully as a young company. I appreciate why SER NEGOCIOS is so important, and I tell them thank you.”

Entrepreneurship

An entrepreneur is an individual who creates and/or invests in one or more businesses. Women can take charge of their professional growth and development in order to own and manage their business. 

Marketing

To be successful, men and women business owners must ensure they have a strong grasp of marketing fundamentals and marketing strategies that will help ensure continued growth for their enterprise.

Loans

Access to financial capital is key to any businesses seeking to grow. From funding expansion to hiring new employees, men and women require business loans to help their enterprises succeed.
