In honor of Women’s History Month, U.S. Hispanic Business Council (USHBC) Board Members Cristina Antelo, Claudia Mirza, and Patricia “Paty” Funegra, and USHBC VP & Chief of Staff Sabrina Leeloo Gonzalez released the following statement:
“The contributions of women have single-handedly transformed the very fabric of this nation. From the political arena to Wall Street, women have held a significant place in our history. Our organization recognizes the contributions of those who have come before us, and those who continue to expand this legacy. Hispanic-women-owned small businesses are growing faster than any other minority group in this country – between 2007-2016 alone there has been a 137% increase. It’s no secret, Hispanic-Americans are leading the charge behind our nation’s economic recovery – and at the very front of that charge are our women paving the way for future generations.”
