Danielle Jones, owner of The Dog Wash, a new dog grooming service to open in West Plains, recently received a microloan offered through the Ozarks Small Business Incubator (OzSBI). The Dog Wash plans to open its location at Suite 4, 1504 Preacher Roe Blvd., later this month.
Microloans of up to $25,000 are available to qualifying businesses located in Douglas, Howell, Oregon, Ozark, Shannon, Texas and Wright counties and within the city limits of Mammoth Spring, AR. The goal of the program is to stimulate the local economy by providing startup and expansion loans to new and existing businesses. Microloans may be used as direct loans, seed capital or “gap” financing combined with other lending. The application process is similar to a traditional bank loan application, with good credit and a sound financial plan the main qualifiers.
