The Southwest Florida MicroEnterprise Project is trying to help fight unemployment in Southwest Florida.
The project was created through a collaboration of local partnering organizations to provide training and loans for individuals with low-to-moderate income and/or individuals with other disadvantages, specifically the unemployed, to start their own businesses.
The program officially launched on May 1, 2010.
The Southwest Florida Community Foundation (SWFLCF) is actively seeking supporters who can give financially to the project. For more information about the Southwest Florida MicroEnterprise Project, visit www.swflmicro.com.
