MEO BDC provides micro-enterprise loans, business planning classes, credit counseling, adult and teen financial literacy courses and consultation services. Established in 1997, we have helped create hundreds of new businesses and jobs and train more than a thousand entrepreneurs. MEO BDC offers loans, ranging from $5,000 to $25,000, for startup operations or expansion of existing small businesses. We have emergency loans available for special situations.

The Core Four course enables development of a realistic, achievable business plan. The six-week, 36-hour course is offered 10 times a year on Maui, Molokai, and Lanai. The classes usually are held at MEO Family Center, 99 Mahalani St, Wailuku; an additional Introduction class is held at the Maui County Business Resource Center (brown bag session).

MEO BDC programs are funded by grants from the Maui County Mayor’s Office of Economic Development and Agape Foundation.
