Moderated by Representative Nanette Diaz Barragan (D), the roundtable interview hosted five Hispanic women business entrepreneurs at the White House in the Vice President’s ceremonial room.

The discussion centered on the successes and challenges of Latina-owned businesses, the impact of COVID on their industries, access to capital, jobs, and project opportunities. Harris also highlighted “the important role that small business leaders have in the Latino community and in the economy in general,” said the White House.
