While these funds are great, they are more relevant to the larger "small business" with lots of collateral and great credit and not the mom and pops who are struggling. A underutilized source of Oregon small business loan programs is through revolving or micro loan funds that are funded by SBA, USDA, EDA, etc. This money is given to local economic development agencies to help spur economic development and create jobs, unlike the banks who are looking strictly at credit scores. www.businessloanfunds.com has a directory separated by county for these local, state and federal funds.
