Great Day for MCSC & The Women's Business Center in Bakersfield!

What a great day for Mission Community Services and the Women's Business Center and our support efforts in Kern County. From Bright House check presentation, City of Bakersfield grant meeting, to a meeting with national Wells Fargo leadership that included a tour of a facility of one of our many success stories. This individual graduated from our 'Empezando' (Start, Run, Grow) class sponsored by Wells Fargo. In 1 1/2 years she opened up 2 distribution warehouses, has 2 delivery trucks, expanded her employee base, and reached sales of 1.2 million. Walking thru her warehouse as she expressed gratitude and gave credit of her success to Clarita Hidalgo de Portillo and Jesse Portillo (instructors of our class), MCSC, Wells Fargo, and University of La Verne for the support system, confirmed we are strengthening our economy thru collaboration and education. Thanks to all involved!
