The closing of Big G Food Mart in Cincinnati, OH marks NDC Grow America Fund’s 500th loan, since program inception. Big G Food Mart is minority, family owned and operated small business located in the North Side of Cincinnati. The owner of Big G Food Mart immigrated to the United States in 1982 and has worked at the same convenience store, under different ownership, for over 25 years. Starting as an associate, working his way up to manager and in March of 2013 became convenient store owner. NDC GAF’s SBA loan allows the owner to purchase the building where the convenient store currently operates. Ownership will give the minority owned small business significant savings on monthly lease, supporting their continued growth.
Congratulations to Big G Food Mart and NDC Grow America Fund!
