OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — The South Omaha business community has a big merger coming its way.
The South Omaha Business Association (SOBA) is merging with the Nebraska Hispanic Chamber Foundation (NHCCF), furthering the growth and success of south Omaha businesses.
"All of the business owners in south Omaha, we are very, very grateful for the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce," south Omaha business owner of Plaza Latina Tony Vega said.
The two organizations hope to continue to promote south Omaha businesses and continue providing resources and initiatives.
"Both agencies serve and work with a lot of the same stakeholders. We are hoping we are going to promote unity in south Omaha for those businesses that are Latino owned and for those businesses not Latino owned," SOBA president Liz Codina said.
The SOBA program will primarily focus to become a NHCCF program but most activities will continue on as planned. Current members of each organization will reap the benefits of both SOBA and NHCCF. The merger is expected to be complete in the next month.
