A critical part of helping to expand entrepreneurship and small business on Maryland’s Eastern Shore is access to capital. Many individuals looking to start or expand a business can find themselves challenged in obtaining traditional financing, such as through banks. For this reason, ESEC administers and manages a portfolio of Revolving Loan Funds (RLF) that helps supply small businesses and entrepreneurs with the nontraditional kind of financing needed to start or expand their business.

ESEC’s Portfolio of Revolving Loan Funds (RLF) includes a number of funds. Each RLF comes from a different funding source(s) and has different funding objectives and service areas. Please refer to each RLF to determine which coincides with your possible loan request for your business.
