Business loans for growing companies
Our Business Builder loans serve small business owners with financing needs of $1,000 to $1 million. If your business needs more than $1 million, we may be able to draw upon up to $2 million from other lending partners.

Having been denied for a business loan by a bank doesn’t disqualify you here. The New Hampshire Community Loan Fund's business loans are more risk-tolerant than those of most other lenders, because we will carefully evaluate your business skills, then possibly recommend resources to help you be successful. If we are not a good loan match for you, or if we believe you’d be better served by a bank or some other lender, we will refer you.
To apply for a business loan:
(Dial-up Internet users: If our pages load painfully slowly, please email us or call us at 856-0780 and we'll send you the appropriate forms and information).

3. Business site visit.
4. Referral to training or technical assistance resource(s).
