Jamal Moreno envisioned The Factorie in San Bernardino to be more than an apparel store, but a place where the community can come together. He wanted to expand his business and sought out the help of the OCIE SBDC network to get business advice as well as search for grant and loan opportunities to help him create the gathering place he imagined.

Jamal was matched with business consultant Giovandi Lewis of the Inland Empire Center for Entrepreneurship, a local SDBC within the OCIE network. In addition to providing consulting services, the network seeks to identify mutually beneficial partnerships with local cities, counties, and chambers. Jamal successfully obtained funding through the city of San Bernardino in the form of a $25,000 grant.

The Factorie continues to serve the community and grow through both a brick-and-mortar store as well as an online presence. Whether you’re looking to shop for a new style or want to sell and trade with other local suppliers, Jamal and his staff are ready to help. From various colorways of Nike and Jordan shoes to limited edition tees, hoodies, pants, hats, specialty items, and more, we may just have what you’re looking for. We strive to provide a wide selection for all by having vintage clothing and shoes to more recent designs,” says Jamal.
