Local Incentives Drive Business Success in Wabash County!

Micro Loan Fund

Grow Wabash County is activating its Micro Loan Fund to help our local business community and Entrepreneurs with a need for small, short term lending.  

Grow Wabash County will be offering Micro loans with the intention of expediting the review process for loan requests on a scale between $500 - $5,000. Loan requests for over $5,000 will be available as well but will be subject to additional terms and requirements through our traditional revolving loan fund program. Due to limited funding available, we will select businesses that we feel will most benefit from this funding on a first come, first serve basis.
