FERGUSON, MO (KTVI) – Some small business owners in Ferguson and Dellwood are struggling to find financial resources to help them rebuild after their businesses went up in flames more than a week ago following the grand jury's decision in the Michael Brown case. Jeniece Andrews, owner of Hidden Treasures, secured a low interest loan after rioting and looting broke out last August following the shooting of Brown by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson. Andrews says she can't afford to take out another loan. She's hoping grants will be made available to business owners to help them start over. Meantime, Andrews has launched a fundraising account online.
