Opportunities for Female Entrepreneurs

Female entrepreneurs have unique barriers to starting or expanding their businesses. Barriers such as limited credit, child care availability, family demands, and obtaining funding are just a few of the challenges women face. In the Northeast Kingdom these barriers are compounded by the rural nature of our towns and high levels of poverty. Sharing resources, networking, and building the financial capabilities of women in our communities is vital to their success.  LEARN MORE

In 1988, five Community Action Agencies in Vermont started a pilot program to use micro business as a means for someone to become economically self- sufficient. The Micro Business Development Program (MBDP) was established to offer low to moderate income participants the training, technical assistance, and support networks necessary to start a successful business. The Northeast Kingdom Community Action Agency’s (NEKCA) Micro Business Development Program serves Orleans, Essex and Caledonia counties. LEARN MORE
