JFCS Microenterprise Client Honored!

On June 22, Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer honored Papa Gueye, owner of the African Millennium Market, by holding a press conference in front of the Market. At that time, the Mayor announced the Louisville Metro Community Action Partnership’s plan to give 15 forgivable loans to micro businesses in Jefferson County, Kentucky, including $10,000 to Gueye. Check out the press conference in the video below!

Papa Gueye is one of JFCS’ most successful clients, coming to us in 2008. Since then, he has not only expanded the Millennium Market, but opened a second location in 2010. He has also mentored a fellow refugee and JFCS client through the process of opening a West African restaurant.
