Winrock’s Linsley Kinkade Speaks to RFD-TV about Southern Opportunity and Resilience Fund
Linsley Kinkade, senior director of U.S. Programs, joined RFD-TV’s Market Day Report to discuss how the SOAR Fund and U.S. Programs’ small business technical assistance are helping small underbanked businesses in rural communities across 15 states in the South to build back from the pandemic. During the Jan. 4, 2022 interview, Kinkade said the SOAR Fund has issued more than 300 loans averaging $47,000, each, to small businesses in those states, for a total of $14 million in loans so far. The program also provides critical business support, peer-to-peer mentoring, and assistance to small companies that need help accessing loans, assembling effective loan applications, figuring out financing, marketing and other needs.
