Micro Business Loan Program
The County of Maui is committing $1 million for the program, which will be administered by the Maui Chamber of Commerce, to support economic viability.
The Micro Business Loan Program provides five-year loans of $7,500 to $15,000 and seven-year loans of $15,001 to $25,000. Eligible businesses must have no more than 10 employees, including owners and full- and part-time workers. Businesses must also be located in Maui County for at least a year before March 4, 2020, and be registered to do business in Hawaii at that time.
Additionally, businesses must have sales revenue of $750,000 or less and have the ability to create full- or part-time employment for low- to moderate-income residents. They must also demonstrate the ability to repay the loan and have reasonable credit history and payment records.
