Demand for small business capital is strong

The unexpected passing of Jeff Reynolds, long-time director of the Rural Enterprise Assistance Project (REAP), made 2017 a year of change and transition for our small business development work. 

Jeff was committed to rural small business development, and to each and every small business owner we ever worked with. Since becoming program director in 2000, Jeff led a dramatic expansion of our small business lending, training, and technical assistance work. 

He fundamentally believed in small business development as a strategy for small towns. He helped design, campaign for, and win both state and federal programs that now provide resources to other small business development organizations. His impact extends far beyond Nebraska.

We are happy to announce our new loan initiative, the New American Loan Fund Credit Builder Loan Program.

This product will help create credit history and make our clients bankable so they may expand their businesses in the future.

The New American Loan Fund creates a financial path for individuals who are looking to start a business but do not qualify for government loans or loans through traditional lenders.

To date, $800,000 has been loaned to individuals through the New American Loan Fund.
