Rafael Rivera is an immigrant from Guatemala that came to the United States to succeed. He did not let any obstacles hold him back because as he says he keeps his “dream box” close to his heart remembering the wise advice his mom gave him to never give up and make his dreams become a reality.
When his Financial coach, Ric Saenz, told him that a business plan is almost mandatory to be successful in getting a Loan or Grant, he took the ‘Bank Loans, What is Available’ Webinar on Fridays at 12pm various times and was inspired to create the business plan that helped him get the SEEDS Grant.
The $5,000 grant will help him open an organic farming business that will educate the local community on the great benefits of eating healthy food.
It is this determination and resiliency that makes business owners successful. Rafael says he will continue to browse our library of business webinars on our website to expand his knowledge and grow his business
Continued success Rafael!
