Did you know we offer microlending?

Our microlending solution is done in partnership with nonprofit organizations. We focus on startups, small business development, and education. For these more accessible business loans, credit standards are lower and tend to have the most positive impact on the communities we serve. Students who graduate from small business development programs may be eligible for loans up to $10,000 and can work with a nonprofit planner who understands their needs. For eligible nonprofit organizations seeking a program, the standard program lending limit is a revolving $100,000 minus charge offs.1

Microlending in the community

Your community is our community. That’s why we dedicate ourselves to improving the places we live and work. We recently provided $40,000 to the Northwest Indiana Reinvestment Alliance (NWIRA) to help provide funding for small minority-owned businesses. Read more.
