In-Depth Business Assistance for WWBIC Borrowers ensures that business owners have access to the tools and skills they need to grow profitable and sustainable businesses.

 

Typically, our Small Business Consultant staff meets with a business owner after the lending process is completed. An assessment of the business’ situation is conducted, questions are answered and recommendations are made. Then, our staff and volunteers will work with clients on an ongoing basis, providing support and resources as needed. Our Small Business Consultants are experienced educators and former business owners who “know what it’s like” to operate a small business.
