This is a collaborative project between Western Carolina University (WCU) and Mountain BizWorks to increase CDFI small business lending and entrepreneurial training in the Southwestern Region—Cherokee, Clay, Graham, Haywood, Jackson, Macon, and Swain counties. With support from a USDA Rural Development grant, we’re very pleased to be able to increase our work with Southwestern area entrepreneurs and partners.
We will be holding events, consultations, and lending services across this region’s footprint. Connect with us in your backyard.

That’s what being a B Corp is all about: B Corps aspire to use the power of markets to solve social and environmental problems.Learn more about B-Corps
