"I am a long term Detroit business person since 1995. When I started another business in real estate development I was in new territory. I suffered through learning a new business, bad contractors, and burning through over $200k to get started. After 3 years, my money was gone and rehabbing properties was slow because I was reduced to using my paycheck. This loan changed all that! The $25k helped me finish the most recent project I was working on. It gave me that extra push I needed financially and restored my sense of purpose after about a year of feeling defeated. The application process was simple, the staff was amazing, and being supported by my own is just the icing on the cake! I have been so impressed with BLD that I became a donating member even before my loan was approved. This is an idea whose time has long come! THANK YOU does not begin to capture how grateful we are!"
