The Business and Industry Center of Wayne Community College will offer the free "Start and Grow Your Business with Advice and a Loan" course on Tuesdays, Jan. 11 through March 8.

It will be held evenings from 6 to 8 in Room 216 of the Wayne Learning Center on campus.

Register as soon as possible by calling 735-5151, extension 334.

The course, led by Greg Hannibal, integrates financing with training and advice. Help developing a business plan, on-going support, local technical assistance, and counseling are provided to participants.

Promising entrepreneurs who complete the program may qualify for loans of up to $25,000 from the N.C. Microenterprise Loan Program to start new small businesses and to grow existing ones. Last year, 10 participants who completed the training at Wayne Community received the loans.
