“I would like to thank El Centro de la Raza for all the support they have given us and the time they have dedicated to us in the PPP application process which was $2,300 and also thank us since they gave us information and helped in the application process for the Small Business Flex Fund loan through Evergreen Business Capital. Thanks to the support and information we can get a loan of $40,000. Thanks to the loan, it was possible to continue the business and we will expand with a location in Everett! Once again, thank you very much and a blessing to everyone who helped us!”
