The Microbusiness Development program offers aspiring entrepreneurs the opportunity to make their dreams become a reality. Microbusinesses are small businesses of five or less individuals with often the owner being the only employee of the business.
The Microbusiness Program offers a twenty hour Business Education Course to low- and moderate-income individuals that covers setting business goals, financing, pricing products and services, preparing cash flow statements, record keeping systems, understanding financial statements and balance sheets, writing business plans and more. The classes are interactive, educational, fun and most importantly, give someone wishing to start their own business a solid foundation.
An eight hour QuickBooks class is offered once every six months. This class covers using the QuickBooks interface and teaching entrepreneurs how to manage their finances using computer software. The final training is a Microsoft Excel Class that teaches individuals how to create spreadsheets, create formulas in worksheets, manipulate worksheet elements, and more. The goal for this class is to provide a tracking system for small business owners to utilize. The Microbusiness Development Program also offers small business loans ranging from $500.00 to $15,000.00. Loans cans be used for business start-up or expansion.
The Microbusiness Program has helped individuals from both Adams and Brown Counties start or expand small businesses for almost twelve years.
