Community Futures Essex County has helped me tremendously since Covid hit us hard. The staff went to great lengths to ensure that my tour company was poised to survive the pandemic. They seemed to always be on top of the latest news and offerings available to us.
CF Essex County looks at my business as essential to my community and it shows. I had such a good experience the first time that I used their services, that they are my go-to when my business needs financing.
Like many others, my business was almost completely shut down during the pandemic. I can't express strongly enough, how valuable the loans from CF Essex County were for my business. I was able to keep core staff, equip my business for the reopening changes, and essentially be up and running right away when restrictions lightened.
