As small businesses were gearing up to reopen after being devastated by COVID-19 and already struggling amid the pandemic-induced shutdown, they were faced with yet another challenge—the murder of George Floyd.
They are now left to pick up the pieces of their dreams and businesses while also mourning with the community.
In response, AEDS has created the Business Relief Fund to meet these needs of local African immigrant businesses. The Business Relief Fund is a forgivable loan to keep small businesses open and continue contributing to the community. Being an entrepreneur is never easy. Keeping a business alive as an African immigrant during these times requires hard work and your help.
Your support now will help these businesses grappling with the loss of jobs, services and investments more than ever.
Your help will be an essential difference for families and protecting local jobs. Give now.
