America’s SBDCs help make the dream of small business ownership a reality for more Americans — creating jobs and opportunities that build communities throughout the nation.
See how the American Samoa SBDC has served its communities.
JIN Printing is a new business start-up in 2019 owned by Esther Posala. In her counseling sessions she explained that opening her own business was a long overdue dream of hers. AS SBDC helped in areas such as how to expand her business, how to use online marketing resources, and how to increase revenue by identifying needs in her market. Esther believes that her business will continue to grow and plans to keep utilizing AS SBDC services to stay competitive and prosper in the years ahead.
American Samoa strives to keep itself COVID-free by imposing CODE BLUE restrictions which apply to all businesses. Although it requires reduced operation hours, the business community tries its best to stay afloat and retain jobs.
Ms. Bahunsa appreciates the SBDC assistance. Her company is able to employ local seamstresses and help American Samoa's economy.
