Helping Your Business Start, Grow and Succeed

Host and SBDC director, Kelly Bearden is joined by Israel Lara Jr., outreach specialist with the U.S. Small Business Administration, Fresno District. Lara works as an Economic Injury Disaster Loan Program [EIDL] troubleshooter and talks about resolving issues borrowers have had with their current or new applications, increase requests, and denials. He will also discuss lingering concerns with the PPP forgiveness process. 

Bearden also takes a detailed look at remaining SBA programs set to expire Dec. 31 including qualifications and how to apply for the targeted and supplemental EIDL, and more.
