Curacao, the largest Hispanic-serving retailer on the west coast, recently announced the start of its partnership with the Consulate General of Mexico in Los Angeles to empower female students enrolled in its Women Entrepreneurs Program.
Ariela Nerubay, CMO of Curacao, who will also conduct a motivational session about achieving business goals as a female business leader, stated:
The Curacao Foundation is a part of the Hispanic community. We are beyond excited to contribute to the innovative approaches that support women entrepreneurs we serve.
The initiative, which offers its participants skills and training to grow their businesses and achieve their financial goals, will allow Mexican entrepreneurs to access financial tips from advisor Jorge Rabaso, author of ‘The 12 Keys to Success for Latino Immigrants.’
As part of this partnership, The Curacao Foundation will provide Mexican female entrepreneurs with a tour of its corporate offices and flagship store, where they will be able to observe the company's operations and understand the fundamental principles of the business structure.
“By providing resources and support for economic growth and promoting collaboration and diversity, this program will benefit these brave women by improving their income and financial stability and providing for their families’ future,” added Nerubay.
The visit, which will include presentations on developing a business plan and understanding credit and loans, will empower these entrepreneurs and give them tools to put their plans into action.
