Got a great business idea? The Cedar Rapids MICRO program may be able to help!

  • Borrow between $1,000 - $10,000 for up to three years at 4% interest
  • Receive help to fill out a basic loan application, create a business play, and if your loan is approved, further assistance to make your dream become a reality
  • All Cedar Rapids start-ups or expansions are eligible, but people with ideas for core neighborhoods are expecially encouraged to apply

Start at the Cedar Rapids Public Library! Two librarians (Yongan and Nancy) have been specially trained to help guide you through the process of writing a business plan, finding expert resources, and connecting you with the next step to success.

Call the library at (319) 261-7323 to set up an appointment with Yongan or Nancy, or email the library at info@crlibrary.org to be connected to them directly.
