Commercial Loans

Let Our Expertise Work for You

Self-Help has made more than $1.2 billion in loans to businesses, nonprofits and community development projects. That experience means we know how to make your loan a success, even for complex or unusual projects.

We offer commercial loans for $250,000 and up, with no maximum project size. We consider applications for all kinds of businesses and projects, but we specialize in sectors like green businesses, renewable energy, charter schools, healthy-foods businesses and more.

Need a loan for less than $250,000? Check out our small business loans.
