The EDGE 2.0

With interest rates rising, many businesses will find it challenging to sustain themselves in the upcoming years. We want to provide businesses with the security and stability they need to help them grow and expand by offering our new EDGE 2.0 loan. Our EDGE (Economic Development, Growth, and Expansion) loan offers favourable interest rates and terms for entrepreneurs with a vision to explore new opportunities or strengthen their business.
