Georgia Client: Mercy Cosme
Based in Georgia, Mercy Cosme established her small business, L.P.Z. Construction, LLC, in 2011. It is a woman-owned and family-operated business offering painting and remodeling services for residential and commercial establishments, specializing in tile, kitchens, and bathrooms renovations. Mercy and her team value working closely with their customers to ensure that quality, cost, time, and any other individual needs are met. Moreover, L.P.Z Construction stands out for its team of experienced, certified, friendly, professional, and environmentally caring staff.
In January 2023, Mercy discovered Prospera through the Latin American Association while participating in their small business accelerator plan – Acciona, marking a turning point in her entrepreneurial journey. Working closely with the organization, L.P.Z. Construction received personalized consulting, and was awarded business advancement services to develop and implement an effective business plan, a legal assessment to organize the business, and guidance to obtain a minority certification. Additionally, Prospera hired L.P.Z. Construction to take on the remodeling of the organization’s office in Atlanta, Georgia, which resulted in a beautiful, aesthetic, and welcoming space.
During its trajectory, L.P.Z. Construction has increased its clients from 3 to 250 across multiple states. Today, Mercy’s advice to other Hispanic entrepreneurs is to use Prospera’s and every other local resource available to identify your business’ phase and advance it. In the future, L.P.Z. Construction aspires to lead Georgia’s renovations industry and plans to venture into procurement with the public sector.
