Texas College Team Looking to Award Grant to Local Women-Owned Business

Enactus is a national non-profit organization with chapters around the nation. Its members include students and business leaders who believe in the power of entrepreneurship to change lives and communities for the better. One chapter located at Wiley College wants to award grant money to a small local business owned by a woman.

The college chapter is looking for a deserving business as the recipient of grant money the chapter received from The Coca-Cola Foundation, Sam’s Club and Walmart. The total grant award comes to $4,500, and one small business in Marshall, Texas will be chosen for the grant award. Eligible businesses must be located within the Marshall city limits and be led by a woman.

As the project manager for Wiley Enactus, Leon Moukendi, explained, “The goal is to help strengthen the community by doing what we can, such as helping small businesses do well. “We are planning to use this grant to help a small business flourish,” “It’s a woman-empowering grant. We need to find a business led by women that’s helping the community.”

For five years, the Wiley College Enactus chapter has been focusing their efforts on helping to build a better community. The team plans to make a selection by the end of January on which women-owned business will receive the grant.
