Loan ProgramsProviding Loans to Minority Businesses in the City of Miami
The primary mission of MBF is to provide easier access to funds for minority entrepreneurs.
In 2011, MBF created a loan program to provide loans of $10,000 to $50,000 to City of Miami minority-owned businesses. In 2013, seeing the need for smaller loans with a simpler underwriting process, it launched a microloan program with loans from $2,500 to $10,000. In 2014, MBF partnered with Enterprise Florida, Inc. (EFI) and through their State Small Business Initiative Loan Participation Program, MBF has been able to provide loans of up to $100,000. All three of these loan programs aim to stimulate economic development in the City of Miami by helping minority-owned businesses grow and create jobs.
Since 2011, MBF has awarded 46 loans totaling more than $1.7 million to City of Miami minority-owned businesses, helping to create more than 250 jobs. MBF continues its commitment to providing access to funds for minority entrepreneurs.

MBF #smallbiztips: “Reaction Management.” Per @JonTaffer of @BarRescue success is based on ability to read & manage reactions. Restaurants don’t deliver plates of food; they deliver customer’s reaction to the food. Knowing how to generate right reaction is how to win customers. https://t.co/CBFcbQhLg7
