Bringing Us to the Next Level

“Community Futures did more than just lend financial assistance bringing our business to the “next level.” They helped us create a detailed business plan that outlined each step of the process. We went from a small home-based “maybe this could work” idea to a professional business that now employs three people full time. We would absolutely reach out to Community Futures on any further expansion of our business.”
