Peter Raiwe enrolled in our Small Business Accelerator (SBA) Program to build a solid foundation in business planning for his own business, Hi Life Beverages. Doing so would improve his chances of eventually being approved for a small business loan.
After completing the six-week SBA program, Peter applied and was approved for a $5,000 loan with ACCESS to rebrand and buy larger quantities of his products.
“As a small business owner, ACCESS’ Small Business Loan is really really helpful,” Peter said. “I would encourage people to get this loan.”
The SBA program and the influx of money from the business loan have given Peter the confidence to begin the process of launching Hi Life Beverages into the US market.
