One day while LaTanya was networking, she was informed about Accion Texas Inc., a nonprofit microlender that loans money to small business and entrepreneurs. She inquired and applied for a microloan and shortly after was approved for a $5,450 Accion loan. The loan allowed LaTanya to cover her current and future payroll needs for her staff of six.
LaTonya’s future plans are to hire additional staff members and continue advising, recruiting, and making new contacts in the Houston area.
