WHAT
WE DO

We loan money to small businesses

We loan money to small businesses so they succeed and grow. 

We provide loans with flexible terms and conditions.  Our loans are often customized to fit the individual circumstances of the small businesses who become our clients.  We are able to loan funds in amounts of $1,000 or more.

Small businesses are the dominate economic force in northwest Michigan.  We help small businesses in our ten-county region, including emphasis on economically distressed areas and people that are underserved (see Venture North service area map showing areas currently classified as economically distressed).

When we loan funds, we place priority on the impact of the business in their community.  The first question we ask is: “How would our loan help the community that is home to the business?”
