07 Jun Local Businesses Assisted with E-Community Loans
The McPherson County Entrepreneurship Community loan program was created through the Kansas Center for Entrepreneurship Tax Credit Program and Network Kansas. The program is administered by the McPherson Chamber of Commerce to provide low interest loans to entrepreneurs wishing to start, purchase or expand a business in McPherson County. The loans are to be used in partnership with a financial institution and/or a Network Kansas partner to fill the gap” of financing a business start-up or expansion. Funds can be used for equipment, inventory, real estate and working capital.
Since 2012, the E-Community Loan Program has approved 59 low interest loans, totaling over $2,153,000! These Entrepreneurship Loans have also resulted in many added jobs and growth for our community!
