Community Futures Sunrise is considered a 'developmental lender' and as such we offer more flexible lending criteria than a traditional financial institution. Each loan application will be evaluated on its own merit and we work with the entrepreneur to find solutions. We also often partner with other lenders to make your business goals a reality.

Generally, businesses must be physically located within our region and the majority of employment created must be within our region.
