What is the Pre-Seed Microloan Fund?  It's a program that allows small disadvantaged businesses in underserved communities to borrow small amounts of money to start or run their small business.  Whether you are a home based business, an independent contractor or a business with an office or store front, the Pre-Seed Microloan Fund can currently give you financing up to $1,500.  Outside of that, we have some community partners that can assist if you need more money up to $50,000.
