Green Bay, WI – SBA Administrator Karen Mills will tour DeLeers Millwork, Inc.—a fabricator of high end architectural millwork and casework.

The SBA Wisconsin District Office offers a variety of programs to help businesses succeed like DeLeers Millwork, Inc. In Fiscal Year 2011, Wisconsin has supported over $835 million in financing to small businesses and more than $37 million to Green Bay's small business owners.

The CAPLine program gives small businesses more flexibility to finance the contracts, subcontracts, and purchase orders they compete for and win – both in the public and private sector. By addressing the short-term and cyclical working capital needs of small businesses, the revolving line of credit helps small businesses manage their cash cycle, scale up and create jobs.
