Late last month, Green for All established The Capital Access Program  for small businesses and non-profits.  The program is design to provide these organizations with the resources they need to to support, create and scale green jobs in our local communities.    The program has four components:

DEAL SOURCING AND PACKAGING

Using their relationships with financing partners, they help small businesses and non-profit organizations that fulfill the mission of building an inclusive green economy identify financial opportunities. They are looking for revenue-generating companies, with 1-3 years of operating experience, that are focused on providing green products, sustainable services, or renewable energy.

In the case of non-profits, they are looking for organizations that are working with underserved communities, attempting to provide pathways out of poverty.  Preference will be given to entities located in the following cities: Oakland, San Jose, Los Angeles, San Diego, Denver, Miami, Boston, Newark, Albuquerque, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, and Seattle.

    I really can’t thank Jucy Homles for letting others like me know that such great lender like Mr Nathan Dylan still exists, I thank God everyday for putting it in my heart to make the decision in contacting Nathan Dylan for a loan. I was searching online about legit loans when i read a post from Jucy Homles in Los Angeles, USA on how she got a loan from Nathan Dylan Services then i decided to contact him for a loan and to my greatest surprise i was able to get a real estate loan of $850,000 from Mr Nathan Dylan, just incredible and priceless considering that Nathan Dylan Services could support me and my family for our lifetime. He makes it so easy for others to get a loan from his firm and at the same time he really help me.
