June 23, 2020: Telling the Story of Microlending in Washington State

Tuesday, June 23, 2020 2:00-3:30 Panel Discussion  

Small loans under $35,000 can change the trajectory of an existing business or one that is just getting started, especially when these microloans are paired with business training and technical assistance and few options exist in rural communities.

This inspiring panel discussion and Q&A about microlenders serving rural and urban communities in Washington state focused on borrowers with limited incomes. The panel featured representatives from Business Impact NW, Enterprise for Equity, Tri-County Economic Development District and SNAP.  Presenters discussed what each program offers, how they structure their loans, who they fund, and how these programs are supporting entrepreneurs in communities in Washington state.
