Pocan Hosts Micro-Lending Event with SBA
WASHINGTON, D.C.—U.S. Representative Mark Pocan (WI-02) will host an event to connect entrepreneurs in the 2nd Congressional District with lenders and skilled counselors from the Wisconsin office of the U.S. Small Business Administration. The event will include workshops to help more new and smaller companies who may benefit from a micro-loan and provides participants with opportunities to ask questions and network after the presentations.
“As a small business owner, I know firsthand how hard it can be to turn an idea into a successful business. This event will help startup companies overcome the challenges of getting a bank loan and take advantage of micro-financing options. Micro-financing helps startup companies establish a track record of success and increases access to the resources they need to grow.”
Participating lenders include Lincoln Opportunity Fund, WI Women’s Business Initiative Corporation (WWBIC), USDA Farm Service Agency, Madison Development Corporation and Impact Seven. Sources of assistance in attendance will include SBA resource partners SCORE, WWBIC, and the Small Business Development Center; and the Latino Chamber of Commerce.
