San Diego, CA -- Ruben Garcia, the San Diego district director of the U. S. Small Business Administration (SBA), signed a strategic alliance memorandum today with Maria Lopez  Flores, President/CEO of the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals (NAHREP), Vista chapter.

The signed agreement allows SBA and the NAHREP Vista to work together, with SBA and its resource partners providing maximum financial opportunities, training and technological information to NAHREP entrepreneurs.

“I’m extremely pleased with the work that is being accomplished by NAHREP Vista and the excellent leadership provided by Maria Lopez Flores,” said Garcia. “Maria has a rich history of
helping entrepreneurs take their place as business owners and I know she’ll continue doing a great job of assisting potential owners to fulfill their dreams of small business ownership.”
