Emily Flores is one of many women in low-income communities with the imagination and drive to create a small business. She first came to the clinic for help in creating “non-compete” and “non-disclosure” agreements to protect the special recipes and techniques used in her home-based pastry business. The success of this business inspired her to try to start a café in her Bronx neighborhood. Clinic students helped her think through the right structure for her business, given the desire for equity participation by both the chef and a lender, and then drafted a certificate of incorporation, bylaws, and a shareholders agreement, all in plain language and tailored to her particular circumstances. The clinic also represented the business in taking over a lease to a storefront and in closing a loan for the rehabilitation of the space. Today, her business is thriving and the students who worked with her have the satisfaction of having helped a dynamic woman achieve her dream and contribute to the commercial vitality of a Bronx community.
