The Cultivating Cooperative Roots conference will be holding its Access to Capital for Business Development Workshop on Saturday, February 6, 2015, from 1PM to 4PM, at the Spokane Convention Center in Spokane, WA.
Are you a small business looking to expand? Are you a farmer looking to produce value-added food or fiber? Are you a business looking for financing alternatives for additional electrical power or energy efficiency upgrades?
Come join us and speak directly with lenders and program managers that provide capital and technical assistance resources to small businesses. Lenders and programs will include local credit unions, cooperative financial services, rural electric cooperatives, Community Development Financial Institutions, SBA lending programs, the USDA Farm Services Agency, and the USDA Rural Development Department. Admission for the workshop is $30 or free with a full-conference registration of $85.
