SBA Forms Partnership With Latino Gay Group

The SBA has formed a partnership with the National Latina/Latino Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Organization, or LLEGO, to encourage participation of Latino-owned companies in SBA business development programs.

These alliances are nothing new for the SBA, which has announced a slew of them over the last year as part of its outreach to minority communities. However, the agreement with LLEGO marks the first time the agency has aligned itself with a gay organization.

LLEGO is a Washington-based nonprofit that works to overcome social, health and economic barriers for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender Latinos.
