"When I was applying for a loan to purchase my building as a small business owner in a tough situation, conventional banks said they could not help me. The Loan Fund sat down with me, heard my situation and decided that I was worth taking a chance on. Here we are 5 years later and I have just renewed my loan for another 7 years. I couldn’t have purchased my building without the help of The Loan Fund and will be forever indebted to them for giving me a chance when no one else would."
