Resources to support your business growth

Getting the capital you need can be key,

but money doesn't solve everything.

In addition to securing financing, we also have an extensive network of service providers for technical assistance (legal, payroll or accounting services). Our connections within the community are our secret weapon to your business challenges.

Professional Service Providers

Our Professional Service Provider Program ensures that clients have referrals and access to business technical assistance during the application process and throughout loan repayment. Our partners are committed to the economic vitality of our region and believe that a strong economy starts with strong businesses.
