Business Planning

A business plan is a tool to help you develop, organize and manage your business. The WWBC requires loan applicants to submit a basic business plan as part of the application process. A Step-By-Step Business Plan Guidebook is available from the Center for a nominal fee. This handbook will guide you in developing a business plan. Assistance with business planning and marketing is provided by Center staff and through referrals. To discuss your business needs please complete and send in the Client Intake Form or contact the Center at wwbc@uwyo.edu.

Credit Reports

With credit card fraud on the rise, it is recommended that everyone obtain a copy of their credit report annually. For a nominal fee, the Center can provide a copy of your merged, three-bureau credit report. A written request is required. If needed, the loan counselor can review the credit report with you to help you understand it.
