Celebrating Latina Entrepreneurs and Women’s History Month

March 08, 2016 : Violeta Stauffer-Rodriguez – Past Contributor

Did you know that Latina entrepreneurs are starting businesses in the U.S. at a rate six times greater than the national average? One in 10 businesses owned by women is owned by a Latina. They are part of the big increase in buying power and taxes paid by Latinos in this country.

Therefore, during Women’s History Month, we want to celebrate and support the achievements of all Latina entrepreneurs, like Ivette Arosemena with her company Ivette’s Nutty Kitchen. Find out what motivated her in this video and please also share your success story with us.
