PVGrows Loan Fund

We know that for many of you, winter is a good time to work on operations, equipment, and other investments in your business and infrastructure. The PVGrows Loan Fund can help bring your business to the next level.

Financing is available for both large and small investments such as equipment, working capital, startup expenses, and more.  Business assistance is available to businesses applying for financing.

The PVGrows Loan Fund is designed as an alternative for borrowers who may not qualify for more traditional bank financing. The Fund offers competitive interest rates, flexible terms and loan amounts ranging from $1,000 to $250,000. Our financing team can also connect you to private investors.

Applicants may also be eligible to receive expert business development services, up to $10,000 in value, in areas such as business planning, regulatory compliance, marketing and management assistance.

After you provide us with some basic information about your business, we will first consider you for a loan from the PVGrows Loan Fund. Or, if necessary, we can help you find the right fit with one of our four partner lenders, each of which is experienced in financing local farm and food businesses. We also have the expertise to provide you with the right type of technical assistance to fit your business needs.
