    About Berwyn's Commercial Loan Programs

    In conjunction with the City of Berwyn, the BDC administers a Commercial Loan Program as part of a concentrated effort to benefit the community of Berwyn by stimulating business growth and improving the City’s commercial areas. The program is capitalized by monies committed by the City and lines of credit extended by our participating lending institutions. The program offers traditional commercial loans for funds greater than $10,001 and microloans for requests of $10,000 or less.
