Step 1 - Do some preliminary research. What type of business are you launching? Are there similar business in town? What is your competitive advantage?
Step 3 - Need more ideas to help plan your business?
When you are ready to work with a bank, we have a referral list of community and local banks. The type and size of your business will help us determine a possible best fit.

There is also the Yamhill County Revolving Loan Fund, which is a regional program with a low interest rate. Please contact John Safstrom at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn about the criteria.
