New additions come to Nia Center on West Broadway

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- New additions to the Nia Center on W. Broadway aim to provide everything you need to start your own business, under one roof.

There are new training opportunities, a new loan program and a cafe in the works.

The name "Nia" means "purpose" in Swahili, and its mission is to help empower everyone who walks through the doors. Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer says the city is going through a renaissance period of growth, and the Nia Center helps make sure everyone can be a part of it.

"It's important that prosperity reaches every single neighborhood and every single house in our community, as well," said Mayor Fischer. "And that's where Nia Center has played such valuable role in our city. We see this as an economic empowerment center for city of Louisville."

The owner of the Sweet Peaches Restaurant announced she'll be opening a cafe at the Nia Center.
