Legacy Project

Microbusiness Empowerment Project

The Microbusiness Empowerment Project will assist approximately 50 low-income Arkansas-based entrepreneurs, especially minority and female-owned businesses, with the mentorship, technical assistance, and business leadership skills they need to prepare for capital acquisition and deployment. Funded by the U.S. Small Business Administration, the project helps disadvantaged entrepreneurs seeking support with financial management, product and target market identification, sales processes, branding, web design and social media outreach, and other assistance. The activity leverages Winrock’s broad experience and expertise delivering a range of entrepreneurial services through other U.S. Programs initiatives including the Arkansas Women’s Business Center, the Delta I-Fund, and Innovate Arkansas.
