The loan was part of a financing partnership with TD Bank and Minwood, who also worked with the Small Business Development Center at Clark University in Worcester on his business plan and projections.

Pasta Mani creates hand-made pasta and is located at the Worcester Public Market in Kelley Square.

The NCMDC is a microloan lender providing loans to small businesses up to $100,000 for working capital, equipment, inventory, expansion and working with our banking partners to provide gap financing for the final piece of a project.
