"My EGF contact was incredibly helpful and I am forever grateful for our meeting to sign the paperwork on my business loan. We had a fantastic conversation about what EGF offers and the importance of connecting small business owners with resources." 

"Banks typically look at collateral, cash flow, and credit history. EGF goes a lot further. They saw what we do, and got to know our vision. It made all the difference."  

"The payments are amazing - really affordable. If I need financing again, I'd definitely use EGF."
