We continue to offer informational sessions on Financing Your Small Business on both the Missouri side and Kansas side. I’ve attached flyers for our sessions being hosted from Oct. – Dec. at each location. Additionally, we just started our fall Operation First Step FastTrac course which targets the low-to-moderate income client and will have another course starting in January/February 2014.

The Women’s Business Center continues to provide business plan development and financing projection assistance for clients seeking funding. We’re also providing some credit building assistance as well.
