SBA Signs Pact With Black San Diego Contractors

 SAN DIEGO---The district director of San Diego’s U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) office, Ruben Garcia, has signed a strategic alliance with the Black Contractors Association (BCA) of San Diego and its president/CEO, Abdur-Rahim Hameed. BCA San Diego works to unite and empower San Diego's business community creating opportunities for professional development & economic growth.

The signed agreement is expected to allow SBA and BCA San Diego to work together to improve business access to technological information through educational opportunities and SBA resources, and provide maximum financial opportunities and training to entrepreneurs. BCA San Diego’s mission is to help to create economic opportunities for African Americans and other members in the construction industry, who historically and today would not get market share in the construction industry. It was established for the purpose of providing a resource for private and public sectors to obtain qualified independent contractors in a wide variety of fields.

“I’m very pleased with the accomplishment of BCA San Diego and its excellent leadership through Abdur-Rahim Hameed,” said Garcia. “They have a strong background of helping entrepreneurs take their place as business owners and I know they will do a great job of assisting current and potential owners with solutions to their dreams of small business success.”

The collaboration between the SBA and BCA San Diego is building a strong foundation for the future. “Having the SBA of San Diego as a Strategic Alliance partner only enhances an already strong foundation of services this organization provides to its members,” said Hameed. “In a nutshell, our organization is geared primarily to provide solutions, the ‘know-how’ and guidance to small business owners interested in penetrating highly profitable markets with the least amount of effort and expense.”
