Hispanic small businesses get boost from World Relief

"Gerardo Mendoza started Ernet, the region's first Spanish-speaking Internet cafe and computer education business, last year."

"A self-taught computer guru, Mendoza said the real learning curve for immigrant entrepreneurs lies in learning the ropes of U.S. tax law, accounting procedures and insurance regulations."

"A year into a business he says is now profitable, Mendoza, 30, [shared] his experiences ... with an expected 150-plus fellow immigrants at Belmont University who are interested in starting their own businesses or opening a franchise."

"[The] effort was organized by World Relief, an agency that helps refugees adjust to life in the United States."
