REAP is well known as the go-to program for entrepreneurs in need of services including lending, loan packaging, one-on-one counseling, business plan development, and specialized entrepreneurial training.
Our staff has come a long way since we began in 1990. Initially, REAP was a full-service Peer-Group lending program. The ability to organize and maintain peer groups was a high priority for staff back then.
By the late 1990’s, direct lending had become the norm. Working one-on-one with entrepreneurs became a prized skill, in addition to working with others.
