Find funding for your small business idea

Almost everyone has a question about money involving one aspect of life or another. What is the best way to pay down debt or save for retirement or for children's college? How is my credit score calculated and how can I change it? Should I consider starting a small business? Houston Money Week, led by the Federal Reserve Bank-Houston Branch, financial institutions and several non-profit organizations, has answers to all of these questions and more in programs that take place throughout this week. For anyone considering a small business idea and who has questions about financing it, Parker Williams Branch Library hosts a Money Week program on Wednesday, April 11, at 3 p.m. sponsored by Accion Texas. Accion Texas is a non-profit organization that makes loans in sizes from very small ($500) up to $50,000 for startup businesses, and larger loans for established businesses. For more information, call the library at 281-484-2036 or Accion Texas at 888-215-2373.
