Miami County Kansas E-Community
Local business owners and startups can apply for a loan through the E-Community Program. These loans are intended to be paired with loans from financial institutions, personal investment and financing from NetWork Kansas resource partners (ex. Certified Development Companies, city/county Local Revolving Loan Funds, Main Street programs, etc.) to complete a funding package for your business.
Goals of the E-Community Partnership
- Grow a flourishing, sustainable entrepreneurial environment supportive of business startups and expansions
- Engage and/or develop entrepreneurial resources to meet identified community and business needs
- Create a revolving loan fund to provide matching loans to entrepreneurs and small businesses with local control of decisions and terms
- Forge a community vision centered around entrepreneurship as a tool for economic development.
The Miami County, Kansas E-Community is housed under The Paola Chamber of Commerce.
