In September 2010, Patricia Torres, a Mexican immigrant and mother of two, was one of the first entrepreneurs to start her business at El Mercadito, the business incubator at Plaza Adelante. El Mercadito is an opportunity for low income entrepreneurs to start a business on the Mission Street commercial corridor. Patricia, who started her business of selling holistic and New Age products as a result of her son’s adverse reaction to medication, was able to move her business to 24th street after only 18 months. She is the first business owner to move out of the incubator. She moved with a strong customer base and her new location is twice the size of her original space. Since the move Patricia’s daily sales have doubled and she hired a full time employee. Patricia is planning to have a grand opening on Friday May 4th at her new location at 3196 24th Street. MEDA’s staff is proud of what Patricia has accomplished and wishes her continual success in her business.
