Strengthening Rural Businesses

Rural BusinessIt is well known that the vitality of a community is often directly related to the strength and prevalence of its small businesses. However there can be considerable risks for bankers who want to assist small businesses and their owners by financing them. Luckily there are resources for those who want to make a difference in their communities while promoting small business the right way.

On March 12, 2013, join the Small Business Assistance Corporation’s very own Tony O’Reilly at a one-day conference called, Access to Capital and Credit: Strengthening Rural Business. During this event, bankers will learn from the experts about how to finance small rural businesses in Georgia and Appalachia, mitigate risk, make a profit, and strengthen the community by utilizing the right tools.

Hear from the experts who design and manage the SBA, SSBCI, ARC, SBDC, USDA, CDFI, and many other loan programs. Your attendance is greatly encouraged at the following location and time:
