Coming from a family that owned a grocery store business in the Dominican Republic, Rafael has always had a passion for business. A proud immigrant and American citizen, Rafael started La Suprema Meat Market this past June, after having successfully run a number of other grocery store enterprises.

La Suprema stands out for its cleanliness, courtesy and service, and it offers a wide variety of fresh fruits and vegetables. Rafael believes this winning model will lead to La Suprema’s success in West New York. He will use this loan to help stock up on inventory, as well as to promote flyers and specials to the community.
