Wichita, Kang. (KSNW) – In just two weeks, two Hispanic businesses went live. KSN News has spoken to the Wichita Hispanic business community, and some say it’s good to see this after the financially difficult 2020.
Wichita’s Hispanic business community leader and Mayor Brandon Whipple says this not only brings more income to Wichita in general, but also helps reduce the unemployment rate in our city.
“I don’t know if I’ll get a job because the economy is starting to decline,” said an employee at El Rio Bravo Supermarket.
During the pandemic, many employees like Valeria Lewis were always afraid to lose their jobs.
“Looking at your culture takes a little more position than what it usually has.
But now that things are slowly returning to normal, more and more business owners are coming up with new ideas and expanding their place.
“In the next few weeks, there will be at least five new businesses,” says Villegas.
Javier Villegas is a member of the Wichita Hispanic business community and says more Hispanics contacted him during the last month for guidance on how to start or maintain a local business.
“We see people recovering from this pandemic and taking advantage of the various business opportunities in front of them. All of Wichita knows that this is a place of opportunity for everyone. It’s a guarantee, “said Whipple.
In the coming months, city leaders expect an increase in entrepreneurs and Hispanic small businesses.
“Now the Hispanic community is everywhere,” said Villegas.
“We are seeing the fruits of those ideas,” Whipple added.
Currently, Sedgwick County has more than 5,000 jobs. For more information, please visit: This link For more information.
