Rural Enterprise Reporter 2008: REAP's Annual Report

Importance of Core Business Development Services Heightened in Tough Economic Times for Rural Entrepreneurs
This year has been a rough one on many fronts. A struggling economy negatively affects almost everything, including small businesses. We have seen mega increases in fuel costs, consumer goods, etc., and the cost of living continues to rise. For many, simply trying to survive is a major struggle. Add the current credit crisis, with out-of-control individual debt and home foreclosures at an all time high, and financial ruin looms.
