Supporting Small Businesses. Strengthening Communities.
Our mission at Allies for Community Business is to provide the capital, coaching, and connections entrepreneurs need to grow great businesses that create jobs and wealth in their communities.
As we approach the upcoming holidays, please note that new applications submitted after December 1 might not be funded until the new year, depending on how quickly we work together to complete the application and evaluation. We look forward to working with you.
We offer free coaching to early, emerging, and established businesses in Illinois and Indiana. We offer loans between $500 and $100,000 a little differently from other lenders: we do not use credit scores and do not put liens on your personal assets. Instead, we evaluate how well you have managed your debts over the past two years and how much cash you have available to make monthly loan payments to us. That's it.
