San Juan, PR, May 5, 2010 -- The Hispanic Business Women’s
Alliance (HBWA) has announced that it is spearheading a national
campaign promoting the theme: “The best way to help Latina
entrepreneurs is to buy from them”.
Lourdes Aponte Rosario, President of HBWA and a past recipient of the prestigious
U.S. Small Business Administration Women in Business National Champion Award,
stated: “We are actively encouraging government and corporate procurement officials,
Hispanic business leaders, and the U.S. Hispanic community in general, which
including Puerto Rico now exceeds 50 million, to do more business with Latina-owned
firms—now estimated at over 700 thousand. Doing so, helps them grow faster, enabling
them to significantly increase their contributions to the socio-economic development
of their communities.
To facilitate finding Latina-owned companies throughout the United States and Puerto
Rico, we have created the online U.S. Directory of Latina-Owned Businesses at our
redesigned and content packed website www.latinamarketplace.com. This state of the
art Directory helps buyers easily find and do business with Latina owned firms. It
also helps Latina firms gain exposure on the Internet and be easily found by persons
seeking to do business with Latina owned firms that otherwise might never find
Ms. Aponte-Rosario also anticipates that non-Hispanic business owners seeking to
penetrate the rapidly growing U.S. Hispanic market, estimated at $1 trillion, will
utilize the online Directory to identify potential Latina suppliers, distributors,
clients or strategic partners.
