SNAP Financial Access
SNAP can help you start your new business or expand your existing business by providing business counseling, workshops, and business loans. If you are unsure about the service that would best suit you, please contact us with any questions.
Do you have an idea for a new or your existing business? Let us know.
Through Snap Financial Access and its partners, you can apply for a small business loan (in amounts ranging from $500-$75,000) to help with start-up or expansion costs. While we are much more flexible than a bank, we do give consideration to your plan, your work history, your credit history and your collateral when making lending decisions.
