“Community Development Resources provided E.M.S.A. with a $5,000 loan that was timely because of our need to acquire refrigeration equipment immediately,” Mira stated. “The loan allowed us to open the door to other opportunities for our business. When you’re getting started, and you don’t have a business credit history, it is very difficult and we were thankful that Community Development Resources was there for us.”
