The Edmonson County Chamber of Commerce hosted a luncheon today in the Heritage Center, sponsored by BRADD Barren River Area Development District.
Emily Hathcock, Associate Director of Planning & Development for the Barren River Area Development District, spoke today on BRADD's behalf to inform local businesses on a loan program that is available called the Revolving Loan Fund. Hathcock said loans given will range anywhere between $5,000 and $25,000, and are to be used for resources such as payroll, utilities, supplies, inventory management, and/or payments to suppliers. There will be an interest rate charged which is 75 percent of the prime rate as published in the Money Rates section of the Wall Street Journal, or four percent.
