The IDA Program may be right for you!
“Mercy Corps Northwest helped me turn a hobby into a successful crafting business. Through its IDA program, I had the opportunity to save money, learn about running a business, and ultimately make more money to support my family. By the time I finished the class, my sales had doubled. A resource like MCNW is essential for the creative people in Portland who want to make their ideas a reality.” —Corinna Buchholz, owner of piddix LLC
