Hispanic business sector "dynamic but precarious," chambers of commerce suffer from lack of trust
"Hispanics, meanwhile, represent a 'very dynamic but precarious business sector,' says Marta Tienda, a Princeton University professor who has studied Latino entrepreneurship."
"Hispanic businesses are proliferating in immigrant neighborhoods, she says, but these business owners would be more successful if 'informal networks' were developed to provide them with business information."
"Many Hispanic business owners are 'very distrustful of participation in chambers of commerce,' she says."
