We support economic development by providing affordable and flexible financing to small businesses that currently don’t have access to traditional sources of loan capital. By focusing on underserved areas, we can help drive positive change through thoughtful and collaborative approaches to community development.

Our loan experts work one-on-one with your business to customize a loan package based on your individual needs. We make the process as easy as possible and ensure that you are involved every step of the way.

Growth Partners Arizona can also help your business during the loan term to develop effective financial and other business practices so your business can grow. When you borrow from GPAz and pay the loan back on time, you improve the credit history of your business, making it easier in the future to borrow from a bank. And, you also “pay it forward” by making our loan funds available for other borrowers.
