PeopleFund and Opportunity Plus are teaming up to bring microloans, mentorship, and facilitated instruction to women business owners across greater Dallas. Together, we provide economic opportunity so women can build strong businesses and empower one another.

Program Details: Financial inclusion is more than just access to capital. This program combines careful mentorship, classroom instruction, and microloan capital to a cohort of 10 emerging women. Together, this cohort will work through business challenges and lift up one another as they learn from community leaders and field experts. Workshop sessions will take place monthly, with guided mentorship followups in between workshops. Participants will receive a microloan of $1,000-$5,000, and additional capital if eligible at the end of the program. Participants will graduate from the program with capital and strong connections to their community and their fellow EmpowHER entrepreneurs.

Eligibility: Eligibility is based on business plans, credit, and is subject to loan underwriting. For more information please contact Tassjania Lozano, Women’s Business Assistance Center Manager at [email protected] or 469.998.0438.
