Loan proceeds may be used for business reasons, including real estate acquisition, construction, and equipment.

Funds cannot be used for the refinancing of existing debt. Applications will be considered on the basis of the character of the applicant, the applicant’s capacity to repay the loan, collateral and/or other sources of capital, and conditions affecting the applicant’s ability to repay the loan.


The application will include financial and background information, including financial statements, financial projections, and a business plan.


The guideline for the amount to be requested is $5,000 to $25,000.


The interest rate will depend on several factors such as the type of collateral, financial strength of the applicant, and the overall risk. Fixed rates of interest will range from 3% to 10%.


The term of each loan will depend on repayment capabilities and the purpose of the loan. Repayment is monthly and loans are usually  no longer than a 36 months term. (3 years).
