The NEK Prosperity Fund is the result of five years of planning by NEK Prosper

A new loan fund in the Northeast Kingdom for small businesses and up-and-coming entrepreneurs, the NEK Prosperity Fund, is the result of five years of planning by NEK Prosper.

It’s a collaborative effort between Northern Communities Investment Corporation and Northeast Kingdom Community Action. NCIC will provide financial resources to qualified entrepreneurs, while NEKCA will offer enhanced business support services from financial counselors. The goal is that start-up and early-state borrowers will ultimately grow jobs in the region.
