Small Business Loans/Grants One Ingredient in Helping Businesses Stay Open and Adapt During COVID

TRAVERSE CITY, MI, UNITED STATES, August 18, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Why are women owned businesses persevering as a dominant force in northern Michigan? From a dance studio to a tuxedo shop, a chocolate maker and much more, 70 percent of the businesses securing funds through Covid relief grants from Venture North, a nonprofit source of business capital, are owned by women. And fully 50 percent of all of the businesses receiving loan capital from Venture North Funding and Development are now owned by women.

Amy Lane, one of Michigan's finest business journalists, gives us the low down on how women-owned businesses are gritty, persevering and ultimately succeeding in this month's issue of Northern Lights, the e-newsletter of Venture North Funding and Development, a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit lending organization that caters to small businesses in lower northwest Michigan. The aim of this and every issue is to share more about the people behind the statistics, their stories, challenges and successes.
