Our Mission

Our Mission is to support community economic development in the Kivalliq Region.

WHO WE SERVE

We are not just a lender or passive investor; we want to work with you by helping you develop your skills and business to succeed.

We provide loans to businesses who, for whatever reason, may not be able to get a loan from a bank or credit union.

When looking at applications, we look at more than the amount of profits the business will make. We also look at  social and community benefits that will come from the business in the short and long run.

We do not just want to be the place where you got your loan. We want to help your business and community grow.
