How SCORE Helped: 

Our consulting firm wanted to open its own Early Childhood Center.  With over 25 years combined experience, we had a solid business plan, budget, and the space we wanted to start with.  We were in need of capital.  We had poor-fair credit, and one partner is not a US citizen.  No bank would help us.  Our mentor, Richard, assisted with obtaining a micro-loan from Pasco EDC, negotiations on the lease, budget revisions, and general financing information.  He is a wealth of knowledge for small businesses.  He is still involved with this project.  We are marketing the new business, and Richard has helped us get the most for our marketing budget.  Richard has been so instrumental throughout this process.
