"I was very pleased with the help I received from the EDC - they met with me and listened to my needs. They helped me get a loan from Self-Help with money from the Chatham Loan Fund. I urge small businesses in Chatham County to take advantage of the Chatham Loan Fund - this tool promotes small businesses to make Chatham stronger and more stable."
Dr. Lynn Williams, Williams Clinic of Chiropractic
"The EDC was there for my small personal chef business, The Food Fairy, when I needed a loan to launch a new product and take my business to the next level. I was the first recipient of the Chatham Loan Fund. Thanks to the EDC, I planned a successful DVD launch party and was even interviewed by NBC-17 for my creative business efforts!"
Terri McClernon, The Food Fairy
"The Chatham Loan Fund has been a huge help for my veterinary clinic. Getting this loan from Self Help and the Chatham County Economic Development Corporation will help me refinance my loan payments, improve my credit, and make essential repairs to my clinic. My loan wouldn't have been possible without the Chatham Loan Fund."
Dr. Barbara Walton, Third St. Veterinary Clinic
I have said many times, without your support I don’t know how we would have held this together. Thanks so much for all you do.
Dr. Jeff Riggs, CAUSwave president and CEO
