We all love Latinas, but why not support Latina owned businesses?
A recent 2017 study done by the Stanford Latino Entrepreneurship Fund, found that Latino owned firms composed a significant percentage of US businesses compared to other minorities. More surprisingly, Latinas’ make up 40% of these businesses.
