Angel and his family own a chain of grocery stores in Elizabeth. His father owned grocery stores after emigrating from Cuba in the ‘60s, and the business remains in the family to this day.

Without formal education, Angel and his family were able to grow the grocery chain. The deli portion of the grocery store offers hot sandwiches, salads, and soups—making availability and variety of products something that sets the grocery chain apart from their competition.

The funds from this loan will go toward new equipment and merchandise, such as coolers and an ice machine for the deli. Eventually, the family would like to purchase the commercial property that the grocery stores are located on.
