Incomer Magazine began when publisher Layla Kargar began to notice some trends concerning her immigrant business owners that were involved in her payment processing company. In terms of employee retention as well as business sale and general growth, the business owners who were immigrants were outstripping the non-immigrant business owners by far. Layla did some research to see if any Maine publications were writing about the trends she was seeing first hand and nothing was being written about the strong ability of first-generation immigrants to run a business. Incomer Magazine was born out of the need to tell the world that immigrants are not a strain on American economics, but in fact, more savvy business-people than the country has seen before.
