CEED Lending

CEED Lending is an initiative of the Great Lakes Women’s Business Council. We provide small business loans to start-up and existing enterprises owned by men and women.

We have made more than $7 Million in loans which created more than 1,800 jobs. As one of the first microlenders in the U.S., we understand that small business owners typically need more than financing. That’s why all of our loans come with free technical assistance – a business growth manager who works with you to grow and sustain your business.

Our strategic partners agree that financing is a critical need for small business owners. Loans are available in nine counties within Southeast Michigan. Click on one of the geographic areas below to learn more about that program.
