Did you know that COIC provides alternative loans for new or existing small businesses? These loans help create or retain job opportunities and / or to assist credit-worthy business owners who are unable to secure financing from other sources.
COIC alternative loans are intended to work in cooperation with conventional bank loans, or in some cases fully fund projects when bank financing is not available or can not be received on reasonable terms.
Our loan department staff is responsible for originating and servicing these loans, compliance with applicable federal program regulations, and managing fund balance sheets.

Some loans can be funded directly by COIC as the only lender in 1st position or a COIC loan can be offered in conjunction with a bank loan (COIC in 2nd position). Thus, your project can be funded from three sources:
1) COIC loan or 1) Credit Union or Bank Loan
2) Your Cash 2) COIC loan
3) Your Cash
The COIC loan can fill the gap in your financing package, making it possible for your bank to provide a loan that it might not otherwise be able to make. Check the Loan Package Structure tab for your cash down payment.
