The goal of the loan program is to increase your business revenue and establish a plan for the new business to succeed.
There are no loan application fees and all consulting is free and confidential.
To submit a loan application, business owners meet and work with SIC Associates (consultants) over a six-week period to complete the following:
We understand that businesses cannot get a loan for many different reasons -- whether your business is too new, you only need a small amount of money, or you have bad credit.

Loan Size: $1,000 - $5,000
Duration: 6 months - 18 months
Application Fee: None
Prepayment Penalty: None
Loan Use: Loans are given for a purchase that will increase revenue for the business. This may be a piece of equipment or machinery, a new type of inventory, a piece of advertising, or any business specific use.
Stockton Impact Corps works with start-up businesses through all steps in the process of starting a business. As a first time business owner (or even an experienced one) organizing the steps to register your business and start operations can be confusing.
Stockton Impact Corps offers free and confidential consulting to people who are researching a business idea, in the process of starting a business, or just starting up to help create the best chances of success. Whether you have an idea and are looking to make it a reality, or are looking to turn a hobby in to a business, Stockton Impact Corps can help with the process.
Consultations are offered on many different topics and can be changed to fit the needs of each business. These meetings usually take place one-on-one between yourself and a member of the Stockton Impact Corps team. We are happy to join you at your place of business or host you in our Downtown Stockton office. Contact us to set up a time to talk about your business and how SIC may be able to help.
Business Plan Writing
Having a business plan is an important aspect of running a business. If you plan to grow your business, get a loan, or sell your business, a business plan will be needed to show others what you do and how you do it. Stockton Impact Corps works with businesses owners of all types to create a business plan document that they can use for their business.
A business plan is the document that you can use to show to an investor or banker when looking to expand your business, and it is where you look in times of uncertainty or struggle. Business plans do not need to be long documents, they just need to answer the questions of what your business does and how you do it.
Business Plan Sessions can be changed to fit the needs of each business. These meetings usually take place one-on-one between yourself and a member of the Stockton Impact Corps team. Contact us to set up a time to talk about your business and how SIC may be able to help.
