Beatriz Zaragosa, owner of Four Corners Insurance, Inc
The East Los Angeles BusinessSource Center (BSC) helped Beatriz Zaragosa, owner of Four Corners Insurance, Inc., obtain an SBA Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) that allowed the small business to stay open during COVID-19 and save the jobs of ten employees.

In addition, the East Los Angeles BSC, in partnership with the Mayor’s Office of Economic Development, and a team of volunteer architects, helped the insurance agency implement COVID-19 safety measures in preparation for when the business was allowed to reopen.

HELPING LOCAL BUSINESS ADAPT DURING THE PANDEMIC

The team assisted the agency with updating its office layout to account for social distancing and helped the agency create company branded safety guidance floor decals, banners and signage for customers and employees.

Zaragosa established the agency in 2012, which is an Allstate Insurance franchise. The business grew quickly and in 2015, the agency expanded to a second location in Boyle Heights.
