Small Businesses Can Get Local Help

/ The Upper Cumberland's News Leader

If you own a small business in danger of going out of business, the Small Business Development Center has resources to help you.

Center Director Tyler Asher said relief loans are available for businesses directly affected by the coronavirus. Asher said businesses could apply for loans up to $25,000 depending on the qualifications and size.

“We’re always looking to help as many as we possibly can that our funds will allow us to help,” Asher said. “We still have quite a bit of room at the moment. If there is a business in need of help, have them reach out to me, and we will do what we can to help them.”

The Small Business Administration provides funds to the center to help with consultants or bookkeepers to assist businesses in need. The center can also assist businesses with business plan or marketing plan development. They can also point business owners to sources of capital or financial planning.

“Some businesses do not know help is available, or they think it is only for certain businesses,” Asher said. “If a business is in any question at all, we will find something that fits you and helps you get through this time.”
