Successful Small Business Case Studies

“Taking that first big step into starting a business and contacting VEDC was one of, if not the best decision I have ever made. I put my small business loan to good use, in finding valuable assets to build my establishment's brand and design our space.”

“My business has continued to grown substantially since I received my first microloan with VEDC two years ago. I am now in the process of requesting another $10,000 loan to expand my business into a new location and increasing production.”
