New York City mayor honors women business owners
To honor Women?s History Month, on Thursday the city of New York gave $140,000 in grant money to 16 women business owners citywide and in the Bronx.
Many recipients said they plan to use the money to reinvest in their company. Malla Haridat runs a consulting firm for women going into business. Haridat started the business four years ago from her home. She received $10,000 in grant money from the city.
New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg promises to continue supporting women?s issues in the city.
