NTLoans-Unique-Color-Stack

NewTown Loans is central Georgia’s first and only Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI). Supported by our parent company, NewTown Macon, an economic development non-profit, we have been financing real estate and business projects and revitalizing downtown Macon for over a decade. As a CDFI, we focus on working with real estate developers and entrepreneurs who cannot access traditional financing and we provide them the coaching, funding, and inspirational capital they need to improve properties, grow sustainable businesses, and transform neighborhoods.  

We offer commercial and residential real estate loans to developers and owner-occupants, and NewTown Loans will often serve as a secondary lender on real estate construction or acquisition projects. We also offer microloans, lines of credit, and term loans to startup and expanding businesses. In order to support our clients, many of whom are female, Black, and first-time borrowers, we provide one-on-one coaching, group training programs, a digital resource library, and workspace.
