Silvia Paulino, Silvia’s Bakery

“A loan alongside technical assistance from FINANTA has helped me develop and expand my business greatly. With the help of FINANTA lenders, I now have plans to purchase my bakery’s adjoining properties.”

Steve & Thao Harner, Bridgeset Sound

“When we opened our store on South Street, we needed capital but were too small for a regional bank. We went to FINANTA and were provided the capital and technical assistance we needed to increase inventory and hire employees.”

Joan Veratti, PollyOdd

“When no bank would approve us for a loan to expand our business, we went to FINANTA. Two weeks later we were approved for a loan. They were the only ones who would support our vision.”
