When Rosamaria Rosales's husband died three years ago, she was certain she would have to close her small business. Closing would have been a big loss for Rosales, but also for the community. Housed at Centro de la Raza, Excelsior Travel Service was the Pacific Northwest's first travel agency serving Spanish-speaking clients. Rosales sought financial assistance from Community Capital Development. Now, Excelsior Travel Service celebrates its 17th year in business.
