Greetings from the Women’s Business Center!

Greetings from the Mercy Corps Northwest Women’s Business Center!  We are proud to be part of a strong network of Women’s Business Centers supported by the U.S. Small Business Administration, providing the resources entrepreneurs need to build and grow their businesses.

It’s an exciting time to be an entrepreneur. More people are starting small businesses and there are more resources available to support entrepreneurs than ever before. Recently, the SBA was elevated to a Cabinet-level agency, giving it more clout and greater reach. Women, in particular, are benefiting from greater access to micro-loans and more training on running a business.  At Mercy Corps Northwest, the SBA is helping us provide the resources that small business owners in our own community need to create strong, thriving businesses.

Read the article below to find out more about how the SBA is strengthening women and small businesses across America, and visit our Training and Events pages to see how we are helping entrepreneurs in our own state. Then, come join a Mercy Corps class, seminar or special event!
