CDR's Small Business Loan Program is designed to assist under-capitalized, start-up and existing small businesses. These businesses, for many reasons, often cannot qualify for traditional bank financing and support. We can provide loans in amounts as low as $1,000 and up to $100,000.
- SBA Microenterprise loans: This loan serves start-up and micro-businesses and is funded by the SBA. Loan amounts range from $1,000 up to $50,000; amortized with a term from 1 to 6 years. Loans amounts up to $10,000 will have an interest rate of 8.5%; loan amounts over $10,000 will have a rate of 7.75%, and will be secured with appropriate collateral. The Promissory Notes for these loans will be assigned to the SBA.
- Small Business loans, $50,000 to $100,000, amortized with a term from 1 to 5 years, with interest rates from 6% to 9%, and secured with appropriate collateral. This loan serves existing and growing small businesses, from EQ2 funds.
