"Small business owners are generally busy individuals and don't always have time to travel from bank to bank to look for a lender willing to provide them a loan," said SBA West Virginia District Director Judy K.

"To help make their search a bit easier, we are bringing lenders and small business resources to one location to meet with them one-on-one and specifically discuss their financing and small business needs."
