Number of black-owned businesses on the rise – Local News – GoErie.com/Erie Times-News

The Erie Times-News added to yesterday’s story.  Number of black-owned businesses on the rise – Local News – GoErie.com/Erie Times-News.

The article added a quote from Gary Horton, who is chief executive of the Urban Erie Community Development Corp.

 

Horton said an obstacle facing many new black business owners is the challenge of finding capital to get started and the ability to sustain in neighborhoods that have social and economic problems.

While finding capital or financing is an obstacle for any business, I like the fact that these businesses enter a neighborhood to make money, but also as a way to give back to the community.
