EP#108 Ceed Lending with Belinda and Xana

April 29, 20241 min read


Unlock the potential of Michigan's small businesses with a special 40th-anniversary celebration of the Great Lakes Women's Business Council and their Ceed Lending initiative. Belinda and Xana join us, and together, we shatter the myths surrounding access to capital and technical assistance for local enterprises. Listen closely as we reveal how Ceed Lending is not just for women, and how a less-than-perfect credit score isn't the end of the road for entrepreneurial ambitions. Their role as a Community Development Financial Institution and an SBA micro-lender is pivotal, particularly for those who might otherwise be sidelined by conventional funding avenues. 

This episode celebrates the tenacity of entrepreneurs and the strength of community as we walk you through a partnership with Ceed Lending that's akin to a business marathon, not a sprint. Find out the steps to engage with them, from understanding loan terms to integrating repayments within your business model. And we're not just talking shop; we shine a spotlight on the vibrant local businesses of Rochester. Be part of our show by nominating your favorite Rochester business heroes and hear their stories of success and resilience in our community-focused segment. Join us for an episode that's as much about financial wisdom as it is a tribute to the spirit of our local business landscape.
