Despite running into roadblocks when it came time to obtain financing from traditional banks, Kimberly Prause, owner of the Cup and Crumb in Moultonborough, turned to Wentworth Economic Development Corporation (WEDCO). From WEDCO, she received a $65,000 loan to work in concert with a construction loan from Meredith Village Savings Bank.
“Without WEDCO, I don’t think we would have opened,” Kim says, looking back. And certainly, Cup & Crumb would never have become an anchor in the newly opened Berry Pond Corner with two full-time and 12 part-time employees in summer, and 8-9 staff in winter.Kimberly Prause
