Luz Bazan Gutierrez, President and CEO of Rural Community Development Resources, asked for a letter of support from the city of Sunnyside to help secure a grant.
Gutierrez said that her company, an alternative lender, has helped 20 businesses in Sunnyside. She also said that Sunnyside has been a crucial supporter of her company in the past. The $125,000 grant that Gutierrez is applying for would help Rural Community Development Resources grow.
The council this past Monday consented to have Mayor Jim Restucci draft and sign a letter.
