Credit Improvement Strategies for South Bend Business Owners

A4CB’s Coaching Credit Loan is available to early-stage business owners in South Bend who complete the initial 11 A4CB coaching activities. The A4CB Business Coaching Program includes a total of 36 coaching activities used to help entrepreneurs launch, stabilize, and grow their businesses. Members of the coaching team use the 36 activities to assess what a business has already completed and to advise a business owner on the next activity to pursue. After you complete this work, and if you are current on your open trade lines and you have not applied for a loan from us within the past three months, you are eligible to apply for a loan of up to $2,500 to help you build your business and your credit profile. Thanks to a generous grant from CDFI Friendly South Bend, there are no interest or closing costs for the first 10 small businesses that complete the program. Learn more on our upcoming webinar.
