The Joint IDA of Wythe County, the Wytheville-Wythe-Bland Chamber of Commerce, and Downtown Wytheville Incorporated have jointly funded a $60,000 loan pool to support small business needs during this time of economic uncertainty.
This fund offers businesses loans up to $2,000 that will be repayable over two years at 0% interest. While this won’t likely make or break many businesses, the mission is to help offset expenses while cash flow is down.
