Hispanic + Latinx Heritage Month is a time to celebrate the past and current generations of the Hispanic and Latinx community, and their contributions to the culture of this country.
This month, we’re highlighting a selection of Latinx women-owned small businesses that we love — and that you can support now and all year round.
