San Germán firm among SBA’s ‘Top Small Businesses’
Food manufacturer Productos La Finca Inc. in San Germán will be recognized by the U.S. Small Business Administration this year in Washington, D.C., May 15-16, the agency announced Monday.
Furthermore, company president Eniel Torres-Ojeda has been chosen Puerto Rico’s Small Business Person of the Year, joining other winners from the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Guam who will gather in Washington during National Small Business Week, when one of them will be selected as the 2014 National Small Business Person of the Year. While in Washington, the winners will have opportunities to meet with top SBA officials and national business leaders.
Productos La Finca Inc. was established in 1995 and reportedly generates an estimated $2.2 million in annual sales through its “Maga” product line.
The winners were recently notified by SBA Assistant Administrator Fred Baldassaro who said, “Your hard work, innovative ideas, and dedication to your community have helped you succeed. The SBA is pleased to recognize your achievements and your role in driving our nation’s economic growth.”
Each year since 1963, the president has issued a proclamation calling for the celebration of National Small Business Week. SBA recognizes outstanding small business owners for their personal successes and contributions to our nation.
