Microlenders are non-profit lenders who mission is to help you build credit and prepare you for traditional lending down the road. If your business is new and you don’t have a long credit history, can’t provide adequate collateral, or if you only need a small loan (up to $50,000) – and you don’t have access to a traditional bank loan – a microloan might be the best choice for you. The Chamber’s in-house microlender is Business Ownership Initiative (BOI), a business unit of the Indy Chamber.
By participating in our interactive Chamber programs, members can develop candid, supportive relationships with like-minded, local business leaders. The relationships build confidence which can cultivate greater business success. During our Business After Hours event, small business owners, business leaders and decision makers in the community will network with others to discuss success and strengths of running and maintaining a healthy business.
Join us and meet with key people who make decisions in the Greenwood business community!
