Small Business Administration Resources and Services
April 5 @ 9:30 am - 10:30 am
Starting and maintaining a small business can be difficult without the right funding and help. The Small Business Administration can provide small business owners with the tools and resources to help start and grow your business. Please join us as Erika Pearson from the SBA will present resources and services the SBA has to offer new and existing entrepreneurs and small businesses. There are local resources available, for little or no charge, that offer training and counseling services developed to assist new and established business owners. She will answer what SBA programs and loans are available as funding outlets that you may not have considered and can be used to start or expand a business.
Erika came to the United States Small Business Administration (SBA) with 30 years of lending background and a wealth of financial customer service experience. She worked for the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) as a Taxpayer Advocate assisting taxpayers with resolving their IRS problems that they could not resolve on their own. Prior to the IRS, Erika worked in the private sector as a Wholesale Mortgage Account Executive for Chase Manhattan Bank, Santander Bankcorp, AIG, and PHH/Cendant Mortgage. She assisted Bankers and Brokers with preparing and underwriting their residential mortgages for sale in the secondary market.
