If you are an entrepreneur who dreams of starting your own business and are willing to work to transform that dream into reality, JVS Chicago’s Duman Entrepreneurship Center can help with a combination of hands-on technical assistance, training in business operations and a three-year, very low-interest loan to get the business started.
Entrepreneurs who have a solid business plan, twelve months of realistic cash flow projections and some some relevant business experience can qualify to receive a low-interest small business loan up to a maximum of $15,000. Advisors are available to deliver practical guidance and advice and meet one-on-one with clients to help build the required documents. Once completed, the loan package is presented to a Loan Approval Committee. The Duman Loan Committee makes the final decision to reject or approve an application.
