Peterborough Community Savings is now offering a Micro-Finance Program in conjunction with their partner Alterna Savings.  These could open up growth opportunities for your small food or farm business!  The program offers loans from $1,000 to $25,000 and can be used for equipment and operating costs (not for purchasing land).  You will need an up to date business plan and cash flow projection, as well as other documents to successfully apply for it-- and other financing opportunities as well!

For more details on the Community Micro-Finance Program, click here or contact Karen Mask 705 748 4481
