The Enterprise Development Department provides business development assistance to Tribal members through counseling and assistance programs for new and existing businesses. We assist our clients in writing business plans, preparing financial projections and loan packages, and in finding retail property that will house their small businesses. This department also provides individual trainings on contract bidding, marketing, book keeping, cash flow and budget counseling. Enterprise Development pulls background checks and credit reports for clients. In depth assistance is provided via one-on-one evaluations of credit reports and development of a strategy to assist clients on how to improve their credit score. Program staff also assist clients in preparing Loan Financial Package documents, pro from, and loans.
