Business Loans

Make Your Business Accessible to Everyone:

mPower can help you increase the independence and productivity of your employees and customers.

mPower provides loans to Maine businesses for the purchase, construction, or installation of features or devices that enable those with disabilities to become more independent in the community and make your business more accessible.

mPower loans are used to enhance accessibility.

The requirements of the American Disabilities Act (ADA) can mean your business needs accessibility equipment or that your facilities require a physical renovation. mPower loans helps make these projects feasible.

mPower works with banks

That portion of the project will be financed separately, through a bank or credit union. mPower can work directly with any financial institution to put together a total loan package for the entire project.
