In these tough economic times, many small businesses have been challenged in terms of finance, growth and opportunities. Just as the Economic Gardening Technical Assistance Program targets Second-stage companies, so does the Economic Gardening Business Loan Program. To date more than half of the $8.5 million the Legislature approved in the 2009 Special Session has been loaned, with the balance of the money available to loan now! To date over 55 companies are in the pipeline and there is still money to assist. If you have a Second-stage business in your community (10-50 employees and annual revenues of $1 to $25 million) that you know may need access to capital, help may just be an application away!
