March 27, 2020: COVID-19 Resources & Updates for WSMA Members: Perspectives from SBA Microlenders

WSMA held a virtual meeting with MDO partners from around the state on Friday, March 27,2020 at 2:00 p.m. to learn from each other and explore how WSMA can be of support to your work in these changing times.

We learned how the COVID-19 virus and subsequent closures have impacted your organizations, and how you are managing your programs with all of the disruptions in your work environments.

We heard from SBA microlenders who are facing dramatic increases inquiries and microloan applications, and came to understand how they are managing this huge volume of calls for support.

Finally, we shared current resources and explored innovative ways to support your local businesses, and especially microenterprises, as we move forward through this crisis.
