ACROSS MISSISSIPPI — The U.S. Small Business Administration is reminding business owners in Mississippi that working capital loans are still available to small businesses, small agricultural cooperatives, small businesses engaged in aquaculture and most private non-profit organizations affected by the severe storms and tornadoes on April 11-12, 2013.
Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDLs) up to $2 million are available at 2.875 percent for private non-profit organizations of all sizes and 4 percent for small businesses, with terms up to 30 years. The loans are intended to pay fixed debts, payroll, accounts payable, and other expenses that could have been paid had the disaster not occurred. To be considered for this assistance, eligible entities need to apply by the deadline.
These EIDLs are available to small businesses and most private non-profit organizations in Kemper, Lowndes, Noxubee, Oktibbeha and Winston in Mississippi.
Applicants may apply online using the Electronic Loan Application (ELA) via SBA’s secure website at disasterloan.sba.gov/ela.
