The US Commerce Department’s Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA) celebrated the 2012 National Minority Enterprise Development (MED) Week award winners on December 6, 2012. The annual awards recognize the outstanding contributions of individuals and entities that made a major impact on the growth of minority business enterprises. Among the recipients was Congressman Silvestre Reyes, a driving force of economic growth in his district of El Paso, Texas. Two Latino organizations were among the awardees: Accion, a non-profit organization that assists in providing business credit and training for entrepreneurs, and the Economic Development Bank for Puerto Rico (EDBPR), which offers development and financing opportunities to small and medium sized local enterprises.
