For a period that spans over three decades, WESST has helped a wide variety of clients at every stage of business. Historically, we have focused on transforming people’s lives and creating a pathway out of poverty by helping low-income women and diverse entrepreneurs achieve financial self-sufficiency through sustained self-employment. WESST is distinguished in New Mexico as the only organization offering long-term, comprehensive training, one-on-one consulting and low-cost loans specifically targeted to women, low-wealth and ethnically diverse clients. WESST is also among a handful of economic development organizations across the country that hosts a network of Women’s Business Centers. Each of our six regional Enterprise Centers located throughout New Mexico offers special training and consulting programs geared to aspiring or established women business owners.

WESST provides services to any New Mexico resident interested in launching a new business or improving the performance of an existing one. Our clients have come to us from all walks of life for help with businesses of all types— retail, professional services, arts and crafts, restaurants and catering, construction, manufacturing, and bio-technology, to name a few. At every stage of planning or expanding a business, WESST is here to educate, encourage and inspire you to succeed.
