Our goal is to strengthen social and economic fabric of the local communities. We finance the capital needs of community businesses including, but not limited to, retail stores and service businesses, wholesalers, and small manufacturers serving and employing low to moderate-income individuals.
By providing loans up to $1,000,000 to finance acquisition, predevelopment, infrastructure, construction, renovation, leasehold improvements, machinery and equipment, working capital, and permanent financing business costs, we support local economies.
