Wayne's Jerky, Sobieski, is the latest company to receive a loan from the Advance Microloan program.
The money will be used for working capital, operating needs and inventory purchases.
"The popularity of his product is soaring, but with limited funds, he wasn't able to meet the demand," said Marianne Dickson, director of the program.
Wayne Ward started his business in 2007. He operates from a state-certified kitchen in his home and sales quadrupled during the past four years. He produces beef- and turkey-flavored jerky, but is developing additional flavors and a vegetarian line.
