Unlocking Capital for North Dakota Small Businesses
Growth Capital Program
Through the Growth Capital Program the RRCF purchases up to 25% of a commercial loan originated by a lender and subordinates our interest to the participating lending institution, thereby increasing a borrower's lending capability. The participating bank will service the loan as they normally would. A typical loan will be for working capital up to $1 million.
Contact your current lender and ask about the RRCF Growth Capital Program. If you current lending institution is a program participant, your loan officer will go through the loan qualification process with you and apply to RRCF for the program on your behalf. If you lender is not a program participant, or is unaware of the program, please contact RRCF directly for a referral. The program is offered on a first-come, first-serve basis to qualified small business borrowers. Loans must generally first meet your lender's credit underwriting criteria with the exception of loan collateral adequacy, which is what the program will cover.
