The importance of that grant can't be overstated. We had been closed here at the Bakery for several weeks with no income. At that point we had not received any PPP or SBA funds. There was literally no place to turn. We eventually got PPP funds, but the grant was a lifesaver! I would like to thank the Foundation for the help, it was greatly appreciated. From my experience the foundation acted quickly and efficiently.Thank you so much! Regards,
In our case in particular we want to thank the financial help they gave us because due to the pandemic the restaurant was closed for approximately two months and with this help we were able to pay the rent since we had no other income, thank you very much and your help was essential to continue to hope that this situation improves I believe that all the businesses that were benefited in this process will be eternally grateful, thank you very much.
Buenas noches, me tomo el tiempo de escribir unas líneas para decirles cuan importante y cuán valioso fue para mi la ayuda económica que recibí...tomé la decisión de emprender mi negocio pequeño en 2015, han sido años de arduo trabajo...con el dinero que recibí pude ayudarme a pagar la renta del local y las utilidades de por lo menos un mes completo lo cual valoró mucho. Muchas gracias y Dios bendiga a las personas que hacen esto posible.
I want to mention the importance of the technical assistance the Foundation, through Chispa Biz Lab, gave me helping to create a financial plan, business plan that was more realistic and gave not only my funders confidence but also will serve as a guide for my business going forward.
