         Emergency Business Loan


For Businesses that have been affected by the Covid – 19 Virus

Many businesses have been or will be affected by the recent measures encouraging social distancing to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus.

Businesses are a foundation to any community and key to a community’s success. When businesses can’t operate or have operated at reduced levels due to an emergency situation, we know they require support to get them back on track.

Emergency Business Loan Program

The Emergency Business Loan Program provides financial support to businesses that have not been able to operate or have operated at a reduced level for more than 5 days due to the emergency. In this case it is the Covid-19 Virus.

Financing is provided in the form of a repayable loan with relaxed terms and interest rates.

We are here to help you. Call us to see if your business is eligible for the Emergency Business Loan Program.
