The Small Business Development Center at the "University of West Alabama" held a rural outreach event for business owners and entrepreneurs.
The workshop was held in Demopolis today inside the Theo Ratliff activity center.
The U-S-D-A is also partnered with this outreach event to provide information about resources available for business owners, lenders and prospective economic developers.
“We provide counseling and assistance developing business plans, marketing plans to help develop perform financials that a business owner need. They need capital access, so we talk about the loan programs that are available both through SDA and USAA 7A loans, microloans and 504 loans,” said Tom Todt, SBA district director.
