BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) – Mission Community Service Corporation held a ribbon cutting ceremony on Thursday, celebrating the Grand Opening of the Kern Women’s Business Center.
The center helps women, low-income, minority and non-profit businesses gain the knowledge they need to start and run successful businesses. The organization offers business start -up classes, monthly workshops, and free business consulting.
“It’s very important to have something here in Kern County because as you can see from the resources available here, it’s very limited,” said Kern Women’s Business Center Director Norma Dunn. “We want to take it all over Kern County. From Ridgecrest to Lost Hills to Frazier Park to Delano and make sure people have the help they need to start their businesses or grow their businesses.
The organization got a grant to become a designated Women’s Business Center on Jan. 1 last year, but the ceremony had to be posted due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
