A Directory of Diverse, Underserved, and Inclusive
Small Biz and Organizations
Why Shop from Diverse and Underserved
Launched in November 2021, Small Biz San Antonio is dedicated to amplifying businesses and organizations owned by or supporting historically marginalized people in San Antonio. Here are just a few reasons why this matters:
Hispanics accounted for 64% and Black residents accounted for 6.5% of the total population in San Antonio in 2020. Combined, they are the Majority-minority and have been for the past 50 years.
Yet, “there were disproportionately low rates of commercial bank lending in neighborhoods with high concentrations of Hispanic and Black residents” according to the San Antonio Small Business Assessment Report of 2020, even when similarly rated as being low credit risk. That's unacceptable.
Indigenous, LGBTQIA+, Veterans, People of Color, Women, and disAbled entrepreneurs are just a few other underserved communities in San Antonio.
For every dollar spent at local small businesses, $0.67 stays in the local community versus $0.45 of every dollar spent at national corporations, big box stores, and fast-food chains. Corporate CEOs don't need our money.
The highest job growth in our country comes from small businesses. If they close, they can't hire locals.
Will you join us in supporting local diverse, underserved, and inclusive Small Biz so that we can work together to create a just economy for all in this amazing Compassionate City?
A'Ho! Thank you! ¡Gracias! Danke!
"We urgently need to make compassion a clear, luminous and dynamic force in our polarized world. Rooted in a principled determination to transcend selfishness, compassion can break down political, dogmatic, ideological, and religious boundaries. Born of our deep interdependence, compassion is essential to human relationships and to a fulfilled humanity. It is the path to enlightenment, and indispensable to the creation of a just economy and a peaceful global community."
