Small business loans
Community Futures has provided business loans on the Sunshine Coast for more than 30 years. We believe that successful entrepreneurs come from many different backgrounds. We often work with entrepreneurs who are not eligible for traditional bank borrowing.
We lend between $5,000 and $150,000. In combination with other partners, we can arrange loans for more than $150,000. Business owners who demonstrate a commitment to social responsibility, and certified B-Corps are eligible for reduced interest rates. Read about social enterprise here. We review your personal credit situation and make decisions based strongly on character.
The first step in getting a loan is a free one hour business consultation (over the phone or in person) with our Business Advisor.
Our financing has helped local entrepreneurs:
Start or expand a business
Apply new technology to a business
Upgrade a business’ facilities and/or equipment
Develop new products and services
Access new markets
