John Jackson, the Chair of PELA CFDC, a Federally funded not-for-profit economic development corporation, states that this gives business in the north of our service area the opportunity to meet face to face with our professional staff.

Gillian Chapman of PELA CFDC will be available, by appointment, to provide confidential business advice and support, plus information on:

Business Loans up to $150,000 with fixed interest rates starting at 2% above prime.
