“I know that business attraction includes an attractive business frontage. I need a business facelift!”
You’d be amazed what fresh paint, great window dressing and new landscaping can do to help improve your bottom line. Rural businesses can access BizBoost loans of up to $10,000. In some parts of rural Alberta, we have developed partnerships with the business community to provide funds to cover the interest on these loans. Contact your nearest Community Futures office for more information and to see if your community is part of the interest-free loan initiative.
Community Futures also offers a wide range of other loan programs designed with rural Alberta entrepreneurs like you in mind:
- Borrow up to $150,000 to start, buy or expand a rural Alberta business
- Borrow only what you need, when you need it. Many Community Futures clients start with one kind of loan product and over the years take advantage of our other great loans and programs.
- Loan qualification and repayment terms are affordable and flexible. We take a broader view of your assets, income and skills than traditional lenders such as banks.
- Get access to a wide range of business supports from analysts who know rural business like no one else, including free business advice and counselling usually up to 4 hours. Afterwards, hourly low-cost fees may apply for additional business coaching, business plan help, training programs and technical assistance.
