About META

META (MicroEnterprise Training & Assistance) is a nonprofit provider of direct and supportive small business assistance to new Americans, women, minorities, and other low- to moderate-income entrepreneurs in southwest and south central Idaho.

We are a direct program of Mountain States Group—a nonprofit community-based health and human services organization with local, national, and international reach. META began microenterprise operations in Idaho in 2002 with a grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Refugee Resettlement.

META specializes in providing direct microloans, one-on-one consulting, and business plan training classes. These and other resources give META clients the tools to prosper and contribute to the economic vitality in the communities in which they live.

Much like an entrepreneur, META uses innovative strategies to constantly explore and develop new markets. META’s vision is to expand the same quality microenterprise development products and services to all low- to moderate-income entrepreneurs in Idaho.
