Loan Department

At Bear Paw Development, we know that strong businesses make our district a better place to live and work. For over 20 years, we’ve provided loans to local entrepreneurs to help businesses grow and our economies prosper. Whether you are starting a new business or expanding a well-established one, Bear Paw Development offers loan services designed to help you reach your goal.

Entrepreneurs recognize great opportunities, but sometimes have trouble getting financing from a traditional bank to turn the opportunity into a reality for different reasons:

  • Your business is a start-up
  • You haven’t been in business very long
  • You’ve had a minor historical credit issue
  • You have limited equity or collateral
  • The business real estate may be contaminated

If any of the reasons listed above are preventing you from getting a conventional loan, Bear Paw Development can help.

We offer commercial loan services designed to help your business venture become a reality:

  • Loans up to $250,000
  • No prepayment penalties
  • Fixed interest rates
  • Flexibility on equity and collateral
  • Longer loan terms to help keep your payments low
