Let’s work together to support our local businesses

Do you work with clients who are trying to start, purchase or expand a business, but who don’t meet all the qualifications for standard financing? Or clients who need support and training to gain the skills they need to be successful? They may well be eligible for one of our loan products, and could benefit from being referred to our office.

Do you work with small business clients? Maybe we can partner with you.

If  you are a lawyer, realtor, banking professional, or anyone else who has regular contact with local small business owners, we may be able to work together to support rural entrepreneurs and small businesses in our region. We are sure you will agree that we all need to do as much as we can to support rural communities, strengthen rural economies, and ensure our region’s ongoing sustainability.

As a developmental lender, we can often lend money to businesses or individuals whom banks are unable to assist. Many financial institutions refer clients on to us as another potential source of financing. Or, we may work with financial institutions on joint financing for clients. Many entrepreneurs have had success using a combination of loans from both Community Futures and their financial institution.

We invite you to peruse this website and find out more about Community Futures and our services, and to contact us with your partnering ideas.
