In Memory of Rosario Arias De Carroll
“Rosario had a strong presence on the Evergreen board, serving since 2015. Rosario was dedicated to assisting small minority-owned businesses, especially providing tools to learn financial education. Rosario had a tremendous commitment to Evergreen Business Capital and Evergreen Business Capital Community Finance as evidenced with her service as our Treasurer and Foundation Vice Chair. We, and the people that benefited from her selflessness, will miss Rosario.”
