web crop Kim and boardDozens of Westchester residents stopped in to Community Capital New York’s Entrepreneurial Pop Up Shop last week to buy local for the holidays! Sponsored by Tompkins Mahopac Bank, the event, held at small business loan client Ground Floor Co-working in New Rochelle, featured more than a dozen small business loan clients of the nonprofit microfinance lender, from Posh Pretzels selling chocolate-covered treats that made the Oscar Swag bags last year to the Photo Booth, whose fun event pix are a blend of a photo booth and Richard Avedon. The event highlights the agency’s Small Business Loan Program, which gives start-ups, women, minority, New Americans and other aspiring entrepreneurs a loan and the business coaching and support needed to succeed.
