Do you have any updated information on the average wealth of Latino households versus non-Latinos? In 2010 the St. Louis fed found Average wealth per Latino household is only 108,871 compared to 543,702 for non-Latinos. If we do not have wealth, families cannot grow long-term

We are the initial thread of the fabric of America. eVERY 30 SECONDS A LATINA TURNS 18 as we are a younger population. We have an impact in every aspect of helping build America. 500 years of Hispanic influence and Hispanices from 23 different countries of origin. Art, history, culture...challenge is we don't raise our collective voice as loud as we should and OUR TIME IS NOW !!!

What are some of the policy challenges or obstacles that y'all see on the federal or state level that hinder further growth?
Cindy Ramos-Davidson
However, there was a lot that weren't accessible due to being in rural areas and less access to broadband. A real struggle small mom and pop Hispanic businesses as well many were women and heads of households. As you know capital access is still a uphill battle for many Hispanic businesses at all stage levels of business from conventional lenders.

What percentage of the members in TAB are Hispanic owned businesses? A great way to get this info into the mainsteam is for more Hispanics to be a member of a Hispanic Chamber and mainstream organizations like TAB.
