New microloans available in West Park

Neighbor Up is working with a team of parishioners and community members at Blessed Trinity Parish to offer microloans for grassroots entrepreneurs who want to start or grow businesses in the West Park area.

The very low interest microloans have manageable monthly payments and a simple, accessible application process for people who may have had no prior experience with business financing, or who may simply need some resources to help them get a project going. Designed to help more people build their own earnings, particularly those who may find challenges with employment, the microloans will provide more than just finances – they will also bring entrepreneurs into a network of people who can provide support in a range of ways, from legal advice to help with marketing services, bookkeeping and business planning.
