003 Small Business Financing, Operations and the Start-up Company

Released on Tuesday, March 31, 2009

This month, we met two ABC members and heard how they took the risk of starting their own business and how it paid off. Up first though, we talked to the regional head of the U.S. Small Business Administration about how the government can help small businesses secure financing and get free advice on improving their operations.
