John Lyuh, owner of New World Camping in Koreatown, Los Angeles
The Hollywood BusinessSource Center assisted John Lyuh, owner of New World Camping, with obtaining a $10,000 loan through the City of Los Angeles Small Business Emergency Microloan program.

New World Camping is a small business located in Koreatown that sells outdoor sporting goods year round. John’s store, like many other non-essential businesses, unfortunately had to close due to the Safer at Home orders that took place back in March 2020.

Looking for resources and financial support he reached out to the Hollywood BusinessSource Center and immediately scheduled an appointment with a business coach who was able to assist John with applying for the City’s Emergency Loan as well as other loan programs. John received $10,000 to help keep his business running and cover business expenses.

New World Camping is currently open and John is following all protocols to keep his business and clients safe during COVID-19. He will continue to work with the Hollywood BusinessSource Center and said he is thankful to receive the help.

“Thank you for your help. If without your help I couldn't even apply.” he said.
