What we do

Mercy Corps Northwest supports over 2,100 small business owners across the Pacific Northwest each year. We offer small business grants, loans, advising and education.

Mercy Corps Northwest works together with people in Oregon and Washington who are ready to create more productive, secure, and satisfying lives for themselves, their families and their communities. In early 2023, we announced that we would transition away from direct-to-client services. 

As of January 1, 2024, we have completed all client programs. Our Clackamas County CBRA program will run into fall 2024 – and will conclude all programs offered by Mercy Corps Northwest.

Small business services

We support small business owners across the Pacific Northwest with financial opportunities, education and mentoring. Over the past 20 years, we've infused local entrepreneurs with over $11 million in economic support, and hundreds of hours of culturally specific business training.
