Count Me In provides micro loans from $500 to $45,000 to women who are starting or growing their
businesses. Count Me In loans can be used for working capital, purchase of inventory or equipment,
marketing materials for a sales event, or other uses that will help the business generate cash.
Potential applicants can visit either of CMI’s websites for detailed information and application
tips. See: www.countmein.org and www.makemineamillion.org.
In addition to lending, CMI
offers an abundance of resources and technical assistance through both of their web sites. These
sites offer a series of questions to help applicants assess whether they qualify for a loan, and,
if not, CMI offers online resources to help them become qualified.
