Sam’s Club Step Up for Small Business
The Sam’s Club Step Up for Small Business Project Partnership mobilizes Enactus United States teams to empower underserved Main Street business owners in the US to navigate the lending market and equip themselves with the skills and knowledge necessary to make sound business decisions. Each participating Enactus team will collaborate with local resources to conduct borrower education for the small business community and provide one-on-one mentorship and training for a small business in need of additional assistance.
