Valerie Diaz first contacted the SBDC in April 2016. Valerie had worked at the Montessori School of Odessa since 1997 and was interested in purchasing the business from the owner who had owned it for the past 37 years. We assisted her in putting together a business plan and financial projections since she needed bank financing for the purchase of the business and additional operating capital.


In July 2016, Valerie received the funds from Frost Bank and was ready to open for business in August 2016 right in time for the new school year.
