In 1988, the SBA established The Women’s Business Center Program to better help women overcome continuing barriers to success. Today there are Women’s Business Centers in almost every state. Mercy Corps Northwest is proud to host the only Women’s Business Center in the state of Oregon, located in Portland. The Oregon Women’s Business Center at Mercy Corps Northwest is funded in part through a Cooperative Agreement with the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA).
