Micro Enterprise Services of Oregon

MESO offers a wide range of services, including business classes, consulting, tailored growth planning, access to capital, credit building, and a connection to local resources.


Our work has been focused on poverty alleviation through entrepreneurship in minority communities and distressed areas. We practice our values and mirror our clients in race and culture, which has led to trust building, empowerment and results such as default rate of less than 2% and not a single business closing during the pandemic. Revenues have increased over 1600% for some and clients have bought buildings, saved for their children’s education and planned for their retirement.

Services are provided to clients in Washington state who live within Clark County Washington. We also offer lending in Skamania and Cowlitz counties.
