N.C. Gov. Creates Small Biz Referral, Aid Source
Small businesses in North Carolina have another source to turn to through a new program launched by Gov. Beverly Purdue that involves CUs and banks.
The Capital Access Network facilitates the process of accessing government loan guarantee programs for both businesses and participating credit unions and banks. Business advisers from the University of North Carolina's Small Business and Technology Development Center, N.C. Community College System's Small Business Centers and the N.C. Service Corps of Retired Executives are available to put together loan packages, which aim to increase a small business owner's chances for financing, according to CAN.
