Small Business Loan Resources
An ongoing commitment to small business
Community Futures has been providing rural entrepreneurs with the counselling, services and supports they need to establish and grow their businesses for over 25 years. In 2010/11 alone, Community Futures organizations in BC gave out 568 loans totalling $29.4 million, creating and maintaining 2,308 jobs. Because Community Futures is a developmental lender, we have a different approach than financial institutions, and may be able to provide loans to businesses that don’t qualify elsewhere.
These tools can help you create a viable Business Plan:
- How to write a Business Plan
- Cash Flow Template
- What Community Futures Looks for in a Business Plan
- Why Businesses Succeed

Plus, they can help you connect to a wide network of business leaders committed to creating thriving rural economies.
