Idaho has a new Regional Administrator for the U.S. Small Business Administration. Beto Yarce has taken on the job of overseeing region 10, which includes Idaho, Oregon, Alaska and Washington.

Yarce launched his own business in 2003 and says he knows the "struggles that small businesses go through" and wants to help others make their dreams of owning a small business come true. He joined Idaho Matters to talk more about this work.

My career has allowed me to learn something new everyday and to share that knowledge with all my friends on the radio.
