Latino Business Owners Graduate Entrepreneurship Program
OMAHA, Neb. – There were many success stories in the Mujeres Emprendoras (Women Entrepreneurs) graduation program organized by the Midlands Latino Community Development Corporation (MLCDC).

“Just knowing that it will improve my quality of life and that of my family and also provide quality care to the children in my care,” said graduate Lisset Christian.
During the pandemic, the MLCDC created the Entrepreneurship Program for Women.
“A lot of people were struggling with their finances during this time and our executive director of Mujeres Emprendoras believed that creating free virtual training for weak to moderate families would benefit them in the long run,” said Fernanda Mungaray, MLCDC .
A total of 135 women graduated from the program.
“I am really delighted to be here among my family and friends,” said Gabriela Martinez, graduate.
“It’s a room full of positive energy, of people looking to look for a better future and this company provided the support we needed to start our business and continue our journey,” said graduate Ana Yumul.
Courses offered focusing on business planning, marketing, budgeting and even one-on-one business coaching were available.
