Rural Matters

Dec 13, 2018

Michelle chats with Griselda Rendon, Latino Loan Specialist at the Center for Rural Affairs, and

Sandra Barrera, Extension Educator of Community Vitality, at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln about several key rural matters. The guests discuss the burgeoning entrepreneurship among the Latino community in Nebraska and how the two organizations have collaborated to provide a resource and financial assistance to 123 small businesses in the state, including bakeries and travel agencies. The key to entrepreneurial success, the guests note, is for the entrepreneurs to follow their passion. The program includes walking tours to see how the local businesses are actually operating. As 2019 approaches, the guests note, they want to continue the successful path they have established in 2018, and to work on child care situations.
