CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now)- The Wyoming Women's Business Center introduced people to its 'Starting a Business with $5,000 or Less' MicroLoan program. They received a grant from the US Department of Agriculture to reach out to rural communities in Wyoming, giving them the chance to grant potential business owners up to $5,000.
“We’re just another opportunity to get financing for their business,” Executive Director, Debbie Gorski said.
Even though business center’s main office is in Laramie, they look to serve the whole state of Wyoming, educating the public on starting a business. Some of the main aspects the business center wanted to stress on potential business owners is to have a plan, use the business center and local libraries as sources, and to be passionate about the type of business one wants to run.
"You can be successful anywhere in the state of Wyoming with businesses, especially in this day and age with the internet and social media and the way to reach people and your larger audiences, beyond the limits of your city, or community,” Director of MicroLending, Waldo Smith said.
