 “Wherever the art of medicine is loved, there is also a love of humanity.”—Hippocrates

It takes a special kind of person to offer a healing touch to someone suffering from a chronic or catastrophic disease.  To nearly 4,000 individuals in Puerto Rico, that person is Enid Santiago-Aponte. 

SAN JUAN, PR ---The Puerto Rico and Virgin Islands district office of the U.S. Small Business Administration is soliciting nominations for the 2012 Small Business Person of the Year Award. 

MOROVIS, PR -- For almost two decades, Edwin Ortiz has dedicated his professional life to the business of supermarkets.

In the heart of Morovis, a town with a population shy of 30,000 in the central mountainous region of Puerto Rico, Supermercados Selectos Mr. Cash serves close to 2,000 customers a day.  Its success is largely due to Edwin, who bought it from his brother Ovidio in 1995 and turned it into a service-oriented, customer-friendly shopping venue.

BAYAMÓN, PR -- Jatniel Vázquez-Álvarez knows all too well the importance of hard work and the immeasurable value of family.

At 28, he has already dedicated almost half a lifetime to building a career, an enterprise and a better quality of life for those he loves.

SAN JUAN, PR -- There’s a quaint little shop that will make you feel as though you have just stepped into your grandmother’s kitchen. Wicker chairs and benches, embroidered dish towels and pot holders, and hand-painted teacups.

Then, the sweet yet piquant aroma of blended herbs and spices, chutneys, jams and hot sauces, laced with soft tropical music playing in the background, transport you from your grandmother’s kitchen straight into paradise. 

Hold on.  We are in paradise.

DORADO, PR -- A couple of years ago, Kentucky-based BLU Pharmaceuticals’ president William ‘Bill’ Luster was on the lookout for a new solid dosage facility to manufacture generic pharmaceutical products as part of his company’s growth strategy.

Blu Pharmaceuticals, a certified minority-owned firm, focuses on the manufacturing and distribution of high quality generic pharmaceuticals at competitive prices.
