More Than Just the Numbers
As an impact-driven organization with a desire to be a resource to small business owners and create partnerships that make a difference, our success is so much bigger than the amount of loans we provide or the number of businesses we have helped.
The statistics below are more than just numbers…they a tangible sign of the impact our programs bring to the small business owners we serve.
It is a common misconception that businesses are only able to secure one SBA 504 loan per business. However, there are over 90 small businesses that have worked with us to secure several 504 loans. Whether it was to expand a franchise, open an additional location, purchase additional equipment, or build a larger facility, these small business owners have seen the incredible savings the SBA 504 loan program can provide and are continuing to reap the benefits of the program for years to come.
The ACTIVATE Women program has been providing free business education and training opportunities since 2018. These bi-monthly lunch and learn events provide an opportunity for women business owners across ND, MT, and western MN to come together, network, and learn about a variety of topics to better grow their business and their professional skillset. And the attendees keep coming back!
Our impact stretches far and wide. Serving the entire states of North Dakota and Montana, and five counties in western Minnesota, we are able to provide financing solutions to small businesses across 225,000+ square miles to help better those communities and their economies.
