Are you a small business owner in the Verde Valley seeking avenues of funding to expand and grow your business?  The VVREO Revolving Loan Fund (RLF) may be able to assist you in reaching your goals.  The Revolving Loan Fund (RLF) is a program of VVREO and was founded to assist small and emerging businesses in Yavapai County, primarily within the Verde Valley, including the communities of Camp Verde, Cottonwood, Clarkdale, Jerome, Sedona and unincorporated communities. This program’s goal is business growth, retention, and job creation, and offers borrowers lower interest rates, long-term fixed rate financing, and enhanced private lender risk. The RLF committee and staff analyze and structure the most attractive financing proposal based upon business needs, employment opportunities created, and the level of private sector participation.  See the left sidebar for loan documents.  For more information email  vvreo2009@gmail.com. The VVREO Revolving Loan Program offers small business owners competitive-rate loans of $25,000 or more to finance working capital; inventory and equipment; business acquisitions; renovations or the lease; or purchase of real estate to site a business. A typical loan term is three years and this funding is available when conventional funding is not available or does not meet the full financial need of the client. Following any loan approval, VVREO staff and board members remain ongoing resources for loan recipients answering questions, locating additional resources, and providing careful attention to each businesses’ specific needs, ensuring ultimate success. This continual support is unmatched by other loan opportunities and is one of many differentiating benefits to applying for this funding. VVREO cooperates with the Yavapai College SBDC, NACOG, Cottonwood BAC, SCORE, NAU, and local lending institutions when providing services. Funds for the loan program are made through a loan and a grant from the USDA. The USDA is an equal opportunity provider, employer, and lender.
