New credit option available for small GC businesses
Placeholder Image
MONROE - The Southwest Wisconsin Small Business Development Center and the Wisconsin Women's Business Initiative Corporation are teaming up to offer small businesses with a new credit option.

Heavy credit-card debt and high-interest loans can burden, hamper or even threaten small business operations. There are free resources available to help.

The Healthy Credit Loan Initiative is a two-pronged approach for small-business success: SBDC's financial consulting paired with WWBIC's loan assistance. The Wisconsin SBDC Network supports new and existing business owners through no-cost, confidential consulting and business education. WWBIC helps individuals who face barriers in accessing traditional financing or resources in pursuit of their dreams and economic well-being.

The initiative is currently available in Crawford, Grant, Green, Iowa, Lafayette and Richland counties. To get started, register at, or contact Brock Waterman, senior business consultant for the Southwest Wisconsin SBDC, at or 574-1757.
