The City of Mahnomen Economic Development Authority (EDA) is making a portion of its revolving loan funds available, through June 1, 2020, to businesses located on the White Earth Indian Reservation that are being disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The city is making temporary modifications to its existing loan program and underwriting requirements, to fast track the loan review process.
The purpose of the loan is to provide immediate liquidity to our small businesses in need, until such time that the state and federal government can implement a small business loan program.
For businesses located within the city of Mahnomen the city is able to offer a loan up to $6,000 at an 0% interest rate for up to 15 months, with the first payment due 3 months after the closing of the loan. No collateral will be required if the business owner has a credit score of 700 or higher. If you have a credit score between 600-700, collateral will be required to at least equal the value of the loan.
