Congresswoman Judy Biggert tackled the issue of economic growth from another angle later in the week. This time, she offered a small business fair at the Eola Community Center.
“People want to work. You know, they really do. I think the more tools we can give them [the better] because it’s really been a hard time,” Biggert said.
The focus of this event was helping local entrepreneurs and managers find new markets for their goods and services. They were also able to make connections with other professionals.
Girl Scout representative Joselyn Taylor came to the event to make partnerships with local businesses.
“I used this as an opportunity for networking. I did make a good contact today that I’m looking to pursue,” she said.
Attendees were able to learn about federal, state and county grant opportunities. The fair also provided support for gaining access to credit.
The Aurora Chamber Of Commerce and the Quad County African American Chamber Of Commerce co-sponsored This Event.
