Little Acres Learning Academy Receives Financing

Although the new owneLittle Acres Learning Academyr of Little Acres Learning Academy in Moscow has experience working in Afghanistan and at a large, electronics maintenance and repair facility, Justin Abromavage decided it was more important to make a positive contribution to the families in the North Pocono community.

When his business partner, Leigh Mannina, informed him that the child care center where she works as director was for sale, it was an easy decision to purchase the center. However obtaining the financing was not as easy.

After exploring other options with no success, Mannina suggested they look into MetroAction, where she had previously attended business training programs.

MetroAction provided Abromavage and Mannina with a $70,000 loan that helped the pair purchase the business from its previous owner and start on their own success journey. “MetroAction provided the guidance we needed to purchase Little Acres,” says Ambromavage. “It was a seamless transition.”

And the help doesn’t stop with financing. “We are always looking to improve the quality of care and educational experiences that we provide,” says Mannina. “By attending MetroAction classes, we will earn professional development credit hours through the PA Department of Public Welfare. MetroAction can help us achieve our goal of obtaining a four-star rating, the highest in the Keystone STARS program.”
