Yolanda Diaz knew from the beginning that if she wanted her small business to be a success, she would have to do a lot of networking to find opportunities and find partners who would help her chase those opportunities.  That’s what brought her to the MBDA Business Center in El Paso in 2008.

Since that time, the El Paso MBDA Business Center has provided Mirador Enterprises with greater exposure to local, state and federal buyers, along with assistance in certification, bidding, bonding and financing.  As a result, the company secured one contract for $20 million with the Texas National Guard, and another contract for $4 million with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.  The El Paso MBDA Business Center also assisted Mirador Enterprises with securing $10 million in bonding, enabling the company to create and retain 29 jobs.
