Small Business Financing Program

Our Small Business Financing Program helps you start or expand your business by providing working capital to you. How does it work? You’ll apply for an SBA loan through ACFCU and the government will promise to repay a portion of the borrowed money if you start to struggle with repayment. Because of that guarantee, these loans are often easier to qualify for than standard business banking loans.*
