The EDC: Providing a Big Boost for Member Busnesses

The Clay County Economic Development Council and affiliates like Midwest Small Business Finance provide a “One-Stop Shop” for members.

Businesses wanting to locate in Clay County or existing businesses wishing to expand have help accessing information on regulations and codes, workforce and demographic statistics and projections, training programs and financing—including low interest small business financing.

In fact, the EDC is one of the few economic development agencies in the country that combines the power of an EDC with SBA loans.

A four-page brochure includes an outline of the organizations’ services, including an overview of MSBF/SBA loan programs and how they can help small businesses in this area. A special feature includes the EDC’s Strategic Planning Initiative and its drive to create a world-class business environment.
