AEDS had the great opportunity to be featured on KFAI’s Wave Project segment on Sunday August 3, 2014 (click here to listen to the archived mp3 stream), which allowed us to share more information on the various services and programs we provide and our mission to building wealth within African immigrant communities throughout the Twin Cities and surrounding metros. One way we aim to see Minnesota’s various African immigrant communities fulfill their share of the American Dream is by providing Micro-Entrepreneurial Training and Small Business Consulting to new, emerging and established African owned small businesses throughout the Twin Cities and surrounding metros.
The highlight of KFAI’s Sunday Wave Project segment was providing some of AEDS’ African Small Business owners the opportunity to talk a little bit about their businesses including successes and challenges they encountered along the way. In addition, AEDS’ African Small Business owners gave testimony on how AEDS played a crucial role in helping them establish their businesses by giving providing them micro-entrepreneurial training, access to loans and marketing consulting.
From the numerous African owned small businesses AEDS has had the opportunity to assist, the following African small businesses were featured on KFAI’s Sunday Wave Project:
- Teshome Belayneh, Owner of Rebecca’s Bakery & Cafe located at 2111 East Franklin Ave, Suite 2, Minneapolis, 55404
