Sue Malone, the SBA's number one volume-based loan provider and founder of "Strategies for Small Businesses" in San Francisco, CA, will facilitate a Small Business Loan Workshop at the Renaissance Business Center located at 555 Beale Street on Sept. 9.

Malone will discuss funding availability for startup businesses or expansion options for current businesses.

"Sue really has a niche for doing small business loans, particularly those for $25,000 and under," said Rory Thomas, executive director of the Tennessee Small Business Development Center (TSBDC) at Southwest Tennessee Community College.

"So those startup companies that are really looking for access to capital to get their business started or existing companies that need just a small amount of capital to purchase equipment or add inventory, this would be a great workshop for them to attend,"

The workshop, hosted by Tennessee SBDCs and the SBA, will be held from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. At the conclusion of the workshop, attendees can have a loan application ready to submit.
