Family Partnership Means Business
Marcela Sanchez heard about SEED Winnipeg approximately three years ago. From her first visit to SEED, Marcela felt welcomed. “My first visit to SEED was very nice; everyone was welcoming,” says Marcela. Nef Villagonzalo, Administrative Coordinator for Business Development Services, was very helpful at explaining the process of SEED’s business training program. Marcela feels that SEED has many resources for clients to utilize, and that staff are willing to help with whatever is needed.
Marcela and her father, Nelson, were both accepted into the Business Enterprise Support & Training (B.E.S.T.) program in the fall of 2015. With a commercial cleaning business that was already established, SEED Business Consultants felt it best to begin with one-to-one consulting and were impressed by Marcela’s and Nelson’s hustle; always looking for a new strategy. Consultants were also pleased to meet Claudia, Marcela’s mother and Nelson’s wife, as a fellow business partner. This family supports each other and works as a cohesive team in a most admirable way.

Over the next six months, the business underwent a name change and received bookkeeping training and assistance. They also developed a marketing plan, operational processes, and a pricing strategy. MDN Cleaning was launched in March 2016 and is looking for more commercial cleaning contracts.
If you ask Marcela for advice to people facing similar issues and needing support, she will say, “I would tell them there are people that can help you and will guide you in any need you might have.” Marcela has been a source of inspiration for all who come in contact with her. The B.E.S.T. team is more than happy to support this family in achieving their business goals.
