This package is necessary for those applicants that are not part of the SBA presumed disadvantaged groups (African American, Hispanic American, Native American, Asian-Pacific Islander American, Subcontinent Asian American).
This starts with a two-hour phone interview with you. In this interview we will ask questions about your history and experiences. This will cover your personal life story, your family, your work history, and your education. You must have experienced prejudice inside the United States in circumstances that were outside your control. We will then write your 8(a) certification social disadvantage narrative.
This narrative will be an extremely important part of your application. You should remember that even if the memories of discrimination are painful, the fact that you experienced them is one of the reasons why you qualify for 8(a) certification.
