About the Reporter

The Rural Enterprise Reporter is an annual publication describing program activities for the Center for Rural Affairs’ Rural Enterprise Assistance Project, known as REAP. Last year was an exceptional one for REAP.

As detailed here, REAP reached record numbers of rural entrepreneurs through trainings, one-on-one counseling, group formations, and placement of micro loans. We continued to grow and expand programming in REAP’s Women’s Business Center and Hispanic Business Center.

The Center for Rural Affairs and REAP are proud to be leaders in the microenterprise development field. We continue to ramp up services to reach as many rural entrepreneurs in Nebraska as possible.
