For Irma Orozco, working with EGBI was essential because they helped her get an understanding of how small businesses worked in relation to the U.S market. Before she began to think about opening a business, she was a housewife that had studied business administration and had developed a passion for business. However, she experienced many difficulties in being able to obtain financial and economic opportunities because of language barriers. Fortunately, through Orozco’s perseverance, she was able to find ways to deal with economic and financial challenges while creating ways to make investments into her business. Eventually, Orozco was able to open up her business that specialized in making handmade jewelry, and EGBI gave her the tools to do so.
