Here's some news for people who are interested in keeping their small business alive during the recession.
U.S. Rep. Marcy Kaptur, D-Toledo, is trying to publicize a program that provides interest-free loans of up to $35,000 for small businesses to help them get through the recession. The first payment isn't due for a year. To get the loan, a businessman must prove that his business is viable and will survive once the recession ends. Details are available here at the Small Business Administration Web site.
