Are you a single mother based in the Twin Cities or surrounding area with a business idea? Apply to participate in our MicroLoan Grant Program. If selected to participate, you will present your business idea before a panel for a chance to become the next MicroLoan Grant recipient. 


Bring your business expertise to the MicroLoan Grant Panel. You will help decide who the 2021 recipient will be while offering crucial feedback and an opportunity to participate as a mentor to the 2021 recipient.

MicroLoan Grant

The Emerge MicroLoan Grant is an annual business mentorship program for mothers with an entrepreneurial spirit. We partner with the applicants through a business proposal process to present in the Spring to our EMA Professional Panel. A winner is then selected bringing the dreams of business ownership to a reality. Operating truly as a grant, the only “pay-back” we expect from our winner is to one day pay it forward by being a business mentor to the next MicroLoan Grant recipient.
