Focus Area: Micro Business
As a nonprofit service provider funded by the City of San Francisco and the US Small Business Administration, we work with entrepreneurs and business owners at the beginning and early stages of their businesses, and as they grow but are not yet ready for commercial lenders.
Northern Initiatives is a Community Development Financial Institution. We’re in business to provide loans and business services to small business owners and entrepreneurs who create jobs and enable the communities of Michigan and neighboring Wisconsin to thrive.
WWBIC makes loans to small and micro businesses up to $250,000. We work with both women and men in analyzing their business’ financial needs and guiding them through the loan process.
