LendGR is a microloan and technical assistance program that is offered by Grand Valley State University’s Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation, in partnership with the Opportunity Resource Fund. The program provides small dollar loans to low income borrowers who may not meet the criteria for traditional bank lending. LendGR utilizes Grand Valley State University students to offer technical assistance to the entrepreneurs to help them develop or strengthen business plans, marketing plans, conduct market research and other areas to help improve the support landscape for microenterprises so that they can grow.
LendGR’s mission is to empower entrepreneurs who lack the necessary access to resources and support by providing them access to microloans and one-on-one technical consulting to provide clear and tangible deliverables to grow their business.
