Need financing to start or expand your business? Attend a loan information session to understand criteria and how to make your application competitive. NDC fills a gap in the Twin Cities’ small-business finance market for businesses that are unable to secure loans from traditional banks. Our application process, known as Character Lending, is designed to be inclusive and equitable by incorporating more than just credit history. Attend a free 1-hour workshop to learn everything you need to know about getting a loan from NDC. No RSVP required.
