Valley Economic Development Center, in conjunction with East LA Community Corp. (ELACC), Barrio Planners with support from Brooklyn & Boyle, are pleased to present the fourth and final in a series of FREE and extremely informative workshops on improving your access to capital and the tools you need for growing your small, neighborhood-based business or launching a one!!!

There is absolutely no obligation to apply for a loan, even though VEDC does, indeed, have a fund specifically allocated for loans to small business owners in Boyle Heights and surrounding communities. The workshop is simply a very good place to start because the information presented helps eliminate all the red tape and mumbo jumbo you would normally get from a bank when you walk in to ask for help.

In clear, understandable bi-lingual format (Spanish speakers also strongly encouraged to attend), the workshop takes all the mystery out of the process. Learn the do's and don'ts, the ins and outs of credit and how to work around a low credit score, alternative financing and more. The workshop is completely free The knowledge and know how you will gain is more than worth the two hour investment of your time. Join us for light refreshments. Only 20 spaces are available to email us at to reserve your seat. You may also call 213-321-7115 and make a reservation in person. Hope to see you there!

best regards y muchas gracias!

Brooklyn & Boyle is a print and online magazine dedicated to art, culture and community in Boyle Heights and the Greater East Side of Los Angeles, as defined by the residents of neighborhoods such as Boyle Heights, City Terrace, East LA, Lincoln Heights, El Sereno, South Pasadena, Cypress Park, Arroyo Seco, Highland Park whose lifetime roots in those communities give their stakeholder status that cannot be erased or replaced by gentrification and economic displacement. These are places which in culture and creativity every bit as creative and cultured as one another in which hybrid language and culture have always mattered and have always been every bit as developed and sophisticated as that produced and projected elsewhere in the L.A. Metropolitan Area. Our editorial platform and policies, above all, are based on support support for community integrity and an acknowledgement of--as well as a respect for--the history and heritage of those whose families, have long called these East Side neighborhoods home.
