Alternative CEED Financing
Where to start?
Devon Sherrington – 360fit
“I wasn’t able to apply for a governmental loan because I use contractors in my business. I didn’t have employees, and I thought I was out of luck. The loan from CEED gave me enough cash flow that we could stay afloat. The loan was a buffer, took a lot of pressure off, made it so we didn’t have to say, “oh my god, what are we going to do?” It gave us the time we needed.”
Jasmeen Srivastawa – Vines Pasta Grill
“We have a small place at Vines. When we had to close, our cash flow dried up, but we still had rent and vendors to pay. Organizations like CEED exist to help small businesses. The UMSLI loan will help us close the fiscal year with profit, and we’ll soon be in a position to pay it back. CEED put us back in the game.”
