Gloucester County has over 19,000 small businesses in the area and officials say making sure they have the resources they need to succeed is not only important to them but for the entire community.

They even offered a bit of advice to help them along the way.

"Make sure you work not just in your business, but on your business," said Kristine Robinson, director of marketing of HFM Investment Advisors. "Step back and change your perspective a little bit. Try to see from the outside how you can continue to grow and improve either at your service or your product."

At today's event, representatives from Cooperative Business Assistance Corp., the Rutgers Small Business Development Center, and HFM Investment Advisors, were honored with proclamations  for being one of the first county businesses that received funds from the Gloucester County Small Business Revolving Loan Fund in 2014.
