loan application


Do you need a loan for your enterprise? MACED offers loans ranging from $500 to $500,000. Loans can be used for most business purposes, including: startup or growth funding, purchase of an established business, purchase of equipment or real estate, inventory and accounts receivable financing, contract or short-term working capital financing and debt restructuring. MACED can help your enterprise at every stage of its development.


New enterprises will need to include a business plan. For assistance in writing a business plan, please visit your nearest Kentucky Small Business Development Center.


The MACED loan application is downloadable as either a fillable Microsoft Excel file, or a non-fillable PDF file. The Excel version may be completed on your computer then saved for submission via e-mail. The PDF version may be printed out, completed on paper then mailed or faxed in.
