Regional business lender is now more accessible to entrepreneurs in the Mid-Columbia Basin region of Oregon and Washington
Craft3 will hold an Open House on Thursday, October 20, to celebrate its new Walla Walla, Washington office that will serve the Mid-Columbia Basin (Umatilla, Morrow, Wallowa, Union and Baker Counties in Oregon, and Walla Walla, Columbia, Benton, Franklin, Yakima and Klickitat Counties in Washington).
As a nonprofit community development financial institution (CDFI), Craft3 works with businesses unable to get traditional bank financing – often because they are start-ups or have insufficient collateral and poor credit.
The Open House will be from 4 to 6 p.m. at T-Maccarone’s and include light refreshments. The Open House is free and open to the public.
Just above T-Maccarone’s, Craft3’s new office is staffed by Phil Serjeant, a business lender and ten-year resident of the greater Walla Walla area. Most recently, Serjeant worked for Community Bank.
“This event is an excellent opportunity for the community to learn how Craft3 can lend capital to small businesses throughout the region,” Business Lender Phil Serjeant said. “Come to ask questions and meet our team, partners, and clients.”
