This is the last chance of the year to learn about available financing and the different types of SBA loans.
Ronnie Wade from BERO will make a presentation on Wednesday at Cleveland State Community College in the Technology Building Room T-115. Anyone not familiar with BERO will want to be in the audience.
BERO loans are only available to certain counties. Bradley, Polk, McMinn, Meigs and Monroe all qualify rates 2 percent under prime for loans up to $10,000. Some restrictions apply.
Also, Pathway Lending is administering a $50 million energy efficiency loan program to help Tennessee businesses reduce costs.
