New Mexico Opening Resource Centers For Minority-Owned Businesses

LAS CRUCES, N.M. (KRQE) – With two new business centers in the state, the New Mexico Minority Business Development Agency is gearing up to better support minority-owned businesses.

The business centers received more than $380,000 in federal funding and more than $20,000 from the City of Albuquerque. With the funding, Las Cruces and Las Vegas, New Mexico each received a new minority-focused business center.

“We can play a pivotal role in bridging service disparities and extending our support to an even broader reach of business owners,” the Las Cruces Business Center’s Business Advisor, Candle Baca, said in a press release.

The hope for the business center in Las Vegas, New Mexico, is to help the local business community rebuild after the devastating Hermit’s Peak-Calf Canyon wildfire.

“Assisting local business owners affected by recent wildfires is not just a necessity, but our ethical responsibility,” Business Advisor Gloria Ortiz said in a press release. “These entrepreneurs are the backbone of our community, and we must provide them with the support and resources they need to rebuild and thrive.”

The business centers are available to help local businesses of all sizes. They offer consulting services, help with loans, and development help. The new centers are located at:

  • Las Vegas: 366 Luna Drive
  • Las Cruces: 277 E Amador Ave, Suite 275

A business center is also located in Albuquerque (within the Albuquerque Hispano Chamber of Commerce Barelas Economic Opportunity Center located at 1309 4th Street SW.).
