THATCHER — For a two-week period, small businesses will have an advantage of their large counterparts.

The Small Business Administration announced that businesses with 20 or fewer employees, and nonprofit organizations, will have an exclusive opportunity to apply for Paycheck Protection Program loans without facing competition for the money from larger companies.

The two-week period begins Wednesday, Feb. 24.
