Businesses need money to start up, expand or just to withstand the ups and downs of business cycles. How do you get that financing? What are banks looking for? Do you have to put your personal credit on the line? What types of businesses will banks finance? How do you get a guaranteed loan? Is a line of credit a better option for you?

The Hawai‘i SBDC Network and representatives from Bank of Hawaii, Central Pacific Bank, First Hawaiian Bank, and the USDA will make the mystery of commercial financing less puzzling and give you the information you need to grow your business at a workshop on Wednesday, Feb. 14, 2018, from 9 to 11:30 a.m.

The workshop will be held at Hale Iako, 73-970 Makako Bay Drive, on the NELHA (OTEC) Campus
(next to Kona International Airport).

The fee is $20.
