Small business drives the Arkansas economy, and the purpose of the Minority and Women-Owned Business Enterprise division is to help start and grow small businesses owned by minorities and women. Division experts act as facilitators for professional services and as counsel for new and existing companies.
This ranges from helping with business plans to moving products to market and more. The division can help navigate the process of applying for loans through the Minority Business Loan Mobilization Guaranty Program. Loans range from $10,000 to $100,000. Register now for the upcoming, no-cost loan workshop in Little Rock.
