Business Loans

Our goal is to work with you to identify and create the right financing solution to meet your business’s specific needs. With flexible and affordable loan products designed with entrepreneurs in mind, CFEK can help you take on new challenges.

Small businesses often don’t meet all of the criteria required by traditional lenders, particularly at the start-up stage which can last up to 3 years from the day you open for business. In fact, even well-established businesses can face difficulties accessing the capital required to grow and take advantage of new opportunities. CFEK can take the lead or partner with traditional lenders in meeting your unique financing needs, playing a key role in each instance. Whether you need $5,000 to start your home-based business or $500,000 to expand your production floor, CFEK might be the right partner. With flexible terms, reasonable interest rates and generally less restrictive security requirements, we can help.

When evaluating your application for CFEK financing, we take the following key ingredients into account:


  • A robust and well-researched business plan
  • Historical performance of existing businesses
  • Experience or education in the industry
  • Market potential and economic viability
  • A reasonable personal investment in your business
  • Ability to reinvest if needed in the future
  • Ability to repay the loan and meet operational cash flow needs
  • Quality and adequacy of security for our investment
  • Personal credit-worthiness of the business owner
  • Location of the business within the East Kootenay
  • Local job creation opportunities
