Do you want some money to start your business? Of course you do! Otherwise, you wouldn’t be reading websites like this one. While you have many good options for financing a start-up, I want to offer you another one. This is the Jump Start loan program offered by the Valley Small Business Development Corporation. This is a small loan, ranging from $500 to $10,000.
You can use it to buy equipment or inventory, improve your signage, or set up a website. There’s no minimum credit score and very little paperwork. If you’re interested in this startup loan program, contact Rich Mostert at the VSBDC. Rich can be reached at (559) 476-3975 or firstname.lastname@example.org. I recommend working with these guys; they funded my first business loan many years ago. If this loan program isn’t right for you, they have others to look at.
