As Small Business Saturday approaches, people across the country are reminded that where they buy gifts is just as important, if not more important, as what they buy. Small business is the lifeblood of local economies and conscious patronizing is the action that will drive job growth and reignite community vibrancy. That is why ACCION USA, a leader in domestic microlending and a proud partner of Small Business Saturday, is excited to announce our support for the entrepreneurs participating in the Festival Fete Holiday Market with a FREE credit seminar. Claudia Cardozo, business development officer at ACCION USA will lead the conversation as she teaches entrepreneurs different ways to access financing and promote their brand, with a focus on internet marketing.
Festival Fete’s Holiday Market embodies the spirit of small business, as an event featuring locally grown food, art and products from talented individuals across New England. The Holiday Market will include over 100 Contemporary American Craft artists, strolling entertainment, a farmers market, and children’s crafts and entertainment. The market is a 2-day extravaganza, taking place over Thanksgiving weekend (November 25th and 26th) at the Rhode Island Convention Center, 11am to 6pm daily. For entrepreneurs who are participating in the fair, we’d love to have you attend our credit seminar on November 26th just before the fair begins at 11am. Don’t worry if you can’t make it, you can find ACCION USA at booth 223 – stop by and say hello!
