This is Derek Miller Speaking on Business. For the past 30 years, the Utah Microloan Fund has provided hundreds of low-interest small business loans to our state’s entrepreneurs. It’s an important program, and Sara Day, the fund’s program manager, explains how they help.


Debt, bad credit, lack of assets, and being a brand-new firm are just some of the reasons Utah small business owners get turned down for funding. But where can you go when you’re looking for resources to start or grow your company?

Since 1991 the Utah Microloan Fund has helped small business owners succeed with business training and microloans up to $50,000. As a non-profit, our mission is to help the underserved throughout the state of Utah. Credit scores aren’t everything – we believe anyone’s business dreams can come true and we’re here to help make it happen. Applying is easy and we work with you every step of the way.  

Once your application is complete, you will get a chance to present your business and funding request to our team. Learn more at We look forward to meeting you!


The Utah Microloan Fund is designed to help under-served and low-income communities by providing training and loans to start-up and existing businesses that do not qualify for ​traditional funding. If you have an idea for a business and the drive to make it happen, contact them today. I’m Derek Miller with the Salt Lake Chamber, Speaking on Business.
