Informational Event for “Micro-Entrepreneur” Loan Program to be Held in Bellows Falls

Join us for an outdoor mixer at the Waypoint Center in Bellows Falls on June 27th. This informational event is being sponsored by the Greater Falls Regional Chamber of Commerce and the Brattleboro Development Credit Corporation (BDCC) to promote awareness of the Southern Vermont Microentrepreneur Loan Fund (MELP), administered by the BDCC. MELP was established to help early stage, small, and emerging businesses with favorable lending terms.

Small businesses often have difficulty obtaining traditional financing. The BDCC saw this gap and worked to secure USDA funds to bridge this gap. The program is accompanied by a technical assistance grant. Through the technical assistance program, businesses work with the BDCC to identify aspects of their business that need attention and additional resources which can be paid for by the grant. For more information contact R.T. Brown, or visit
