Lyons, NE - The Rural Enterprise Assistance Project (REAP), a program of the Center for Rural Affairs, along with the South Sioux City Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring a Spanish Business Plan Basics training in South Sioux City, Nebraska. The training is for small business owners/managers or those interested in developing a business idea. The five-week training will be on Monday evenings at 5:30 p.m. at the SSC Public Library meeting room located at 204 W 21st ST, starting February 4th.
What’s in Your Business Plan?  Answering this question will be the focus of the Spanish Business Plan Basics training course. Adriana Dungan, REAP’s Hispanic Business Center Director and the Northeast Nebraska Business Specialist, hopes small business owners or potential new businesses can take advantage of this opportunity at this time, especially since it isn’t offered locally that often.  If interested in learning more about the workshop series or in registering, contact Adriana Dungan at (402) 494-1013 or adungan@msn.com. Registration deadline for the course is February 1, 2008. 
 
The business planning workshop series will include the following main topics: Marketing, Promotion/Advertising, Financial Management, Customer Relations and Goal Setting. REAP collaborates with the University of Nebraska EDGE Program in utilizing the NxLevel Micro-Entrepreneurs curriculum called “Business Plan Basics”.  
 
The course registration includes an annual membership to LBA (Latino Business Association)/REAP and the NxLevel manual for micro-entrepreneurs which are excellent resources when the course is completed. “REAP members have ongoing access to business technical assistance services, and a micro-loan program for small businesses," said Dungan. “These skills are essential in the 'make it or break it' early years of a business.”
 
Based on income eligibility, scholarships are available to reimburse the materials part of the registration fee.
