Do you want to start or grow a small business, but have limited resources ? Learn about our Individual Development Account (IDA) Matched Savings Grant.
Businesses with 5 or fewer employees make up 86% of all Oregon and Washington enterprises. Small businesses are essential, yet owners face unique challenges and are routinely denied access to conventional lending due to a lack of operating history, credit, or branding.
Mercy Corps Northwest provides vital financing, mentorship and education to small business owners across the Pacific Northwest. We also host the only Women’s Business Center (WBC) in Oregon, funded by the U.S. Small Business Administration. Visit our office in Portland, Seattle or Walla Walla to get involved today.
