The Women’s Business Center at Cornerstone Alliance (WBC) assists individuals who are interested in starting, strengthening or expanding businesses by providing one-on-one technical business assistance and quality business and financial capability education.

Cornerstone Alliance compliments the work of its WBC by offering direct business lending assistance in the form of SBA microloans that range from $500 to $50,000.

Services are open to anyone but, our focus is on women, people of color, veterans, and people of lower wealth – those most likely to face barriers in accessing business financing and support.
