PATH CLIENTS

The people and businesses that are changing their neighborhoods and communities for the better. 

We support them and we encourage you to as well.

Who are PATH Clients?

PATH clients are entrepreneurs who are either already running a small business or are planning to launch a small business in one of our target communities or neighborhoods.  We target communities and neighborhoods that have a above average percentage of low to moderate income individuals & families, and need more locally owned & operated small businesses to provide goods & services.  

The entrepreneurial spirit is alive & well in economically depressed communities and neighborhoods, but for a variety of reasons the businesses that launch in these areas generally operate with less formal structure, less capital and lower profitability, despite equal or greater effort and value provided to their customers.  

Like all business owners PATH clients work to provide for themselves and their families, but they also work to improve the economic and social stability of the  community or neighborhood they work in.  They  set an example for other local entrepreneurs that investing in this neighborhood is worth it and that success can be achieved here.  We are honored to help them plan, launch and grow their businesses.
