SCC is currently providing microbusiness development services, including access to micro-loans of up to $50,000 through our lending partner Manatee Community Federal Credit Union (MCFCU), in Manatee County and is actively exploring opportunities to do the same in Sarasota, Charlotte and DeSoto Counties. SCC provides a comprehensive approach to microbusiness development by connecting its clients with financial education, credit-building and computer training services. Through collaborations with MCFCU and other financial institutions, SCC can assist businesses in leveraging capital for additional opportunities.
What is a microbusiness? It’s any type of small business that has fewer than five employees and is small enough to benefit from loans of under $50,000. In general, microbusinesses do not meet the credit and/or collateral requirements necessary to access conventional financial services.
