MBFC awarded Member of the Year by Cass County EDC

Minnesota Business Finance Corporation (MBFC) was recognized as Member of The Year at the Cass County Economic Development Corporation’s (EDC) annual meeting held recently in Walker.

This is the first time this award has been presented.

“We are proud to name Minnesota Business Finance Corporation as Cass County EDC 2013 Member of the Year. MBFC knows the value of nonprofit consulting and has gone that extra mile to help our organization. Thank you very much for your investment,” said Gail Leverson, Cass County EDC executive director.

MBFC offered to match any new membership investments to the EDC that were received in June, July and August. At the end of the membership promotion, MBFC presented a check for $2,375 to the EDC to match the investment of the new members. This was in addition to its annual membership.

MBFC is a certified development organization that provides SBA loans. They know the value of professional business counseling provided by the EDC, as that gets businesses ready for SBA financing.

“We are pleased and excited to partner with you (EDC) on this endeavor. We appreciate the businesses that we have worked on with you and look forward to many more deals,” said Tom Saehr, MBFC president and CEO.
