“SBDC was very helpful with my business plan which lead to me getting my EDC loan.”
Teri Ervin is a resident of Bronte, TX. She is active in the community and saw a need to have an event venue for local community members to host events as well as a draw for visitors to the area. This need lead to the purchase of a local space that was transformed into a beautiful event venue. Teri contacted the SBDC to get assistance with writing a business plan to gain access to funding for the project. Through the assistance of SBDC Certified Business Advisors Teri drafted a business plan to share with local lenders and the local Economic Development Office. She received an Economic Development Loan and a commercial loan to get the project going. Teri stated “SBDC was very helpful with my business plan which lead to me getting my EDC loan.” The event venue is now available for community events as well as larger events such as weddings and other larger special events. Teri continues to work with Advisor Johnson to enhance her marketing efforts and draw in more people to the town of Bronte.
