GUADALUPE, Calif. – Qualifying Guadalupe residents can get a grant that helps them start a business or expand an existing one.

According to non-profit organization Los Amigos de Guadalupe, Guadalupe's Microenterprise Assistance Program offers both technical and financial assistance to current Guadalupe low-moderate income residents and businesses.

Organizers said the individual or business must be located in Guadalupe and be considered a microenterprise business. A business qualifies as a microenterprise if they have no more than 5 employees, including any working owners.

The technical assistance is offered as an 8-week-long business class on what it takes to start and run a business, according to the organization.

By the end of the course, organizers said students will have the knowledge to start a microenterprise and have a finished business plan.

At the end of the class, organizers said these same individuals have the opportunity to take their finished business plans and apply for a grant through the City of up to $10,000.
