Small Business Loans for Manufacturers

Manufacturing is the backbone of American industry, and it has been for a long time. Connect2Capital is here to support that tradition and help you realize your business dream.

As a network of non-profit lenders, we are willing to take the time to get to know you and your business with an eye towards saying “yes” to your loan request. We’ve been helping businesses succeed for nearly 30 years and we are often able to approve loans to businesses that were unable to secure traditional bank financing.


Manufacturing Concept

Why work with us?

We’re mission-driven—our goal is to ethically and responsibly create positive community impact. We know that when your business is successful your community is strengthened too; like when one manufacturing job is created, 2.5 more supporting jobs are added as well.

We’ve spent 30 years helping small businesses access capital. We’re about more than the numbers, we are about the impact our loans provide. Our loans help businesses create jobs, retain employees, support low-income communities and bring capital to women-, minority-, and veteran-owned businesses.

With us, you’ll have a transparent financial partner who won’t blindside you with hidden fees and will walk you through every step of the process.
