Local investments can increase chances of success for local businesses by improving access to capital beyond that of banks with tight restrictions on lending.
Local investment can be a great alternative to costly credit cards.
Businesses can use local investment money to pay wages to local employees and purchase goods and services from other local businesses, circulating dollars again and again locally, many times over. The resulting local multiplier effect increases prosperity across the whole community.
Investors receive a financial return as well, completing the circle and making more money available for local investing.
Local borrowing, lending and investing bring communities together and build resiliency.
