Loan Program Launches in Cleveland to Assist Minority Businesses
The Capital Access Fund of Greater Cleveland will seek to grant 50 loans to minority business owners totaling 8-million dollars over the next three years. It's hoped that money will help these small businesses grow and in turn provide jobs and opportunity. The Urban League of Greater Cleveland, the National Urban League as well as Cuyahoga County and Cleveland are together in this endeavour.
