About Us



Creating jobs and growing our local economy is amongst our highest priorities. Our waterfront, highways, rail lines and international airport provide a gateway to the rest of the world.

Our universities and research hospitals draw world-class talent and human capital to our city, and our neighborhoods are anchored by vibrant business districts that make us unique and diverse.

With all of these assets, Providence’s best days are ahead.

Access to capital is critical to the success of a business, which is why the Providence Business Loan Fund (PBLF) stands ready to meet your business needs with a wide range of flexible loans and financing options.

Providence is a great place to start your company. Our extraordinary quality of life, highly skilled labor pool, proximity to rail, water, air and highway, outstanding educational institutions, world-class arts and theatre, and close access to international marketplaces make this an attractive place to call home.

Through this program, PBLF offers loans that target specific neighborhoods, incentivize new businesses, and provide a wider range of workforce and technical assistance.
