We needed to revive the business association. It could not have been reformed at a better time. They have brought me opportunity, walked me through applications, and are working hard to strengthen our district. I’m glad it’s back.
I am thankful for the BBA especially during this time. The [association] is really geared towards helping small business owners to succeed by educating and equipping them with the tools and knowledge of becoming a successful business owner. For me the program brought out some of my strengths and weaknesses as a individual business owner and for that I am grateful.
The BBA has been a God send during these unique times. As a small business owner they have been instrumental in helping me secure PPP funds. Their representative essentially helped me with the completion of the paperwork, ensuring the correct information was submitted and also that I met important deadlines. The completed application was submitted on time to the appropriate government agency.
