You understand the great potential of Alberta entrepreneurs,
and want to share in the excitement and rewards
of helping them succeed.
Your impact to Alberta can be much bigger than your financial commitment. You choose the small businesses you want to lend to, with loans between $500 and $5000. Your loan then gets pooled with money from other Albertans and ATB, giving the business access to capital they might not otherwise qualify for.
ATB Financial partners with entrepreneurs, gathering information about their financial backgrounds and business potential.
Once approved, entrepreneurs raise the first 10% of their total loan amount through people they know.
LendRs like you review the business, the story, and the loan details.
When LendRs lift them half way to their funding goal, ATB Financial provides the other half, completing the loan.
Monthly Lift Loan repayments, including interest, are distributed back to the LendRs.
LendRs can either withdraw their funds, or give another promising entrepreneur a lift.
