In 2012, RISE partnered with Bank of the West to launch a new loan fund specifically tailored to the needs of food vendors. For many food entrepreneurs, it is difficult to get capital to buy equipment, pay for their licenses, or market their business. With the support of Bank of the West, RISE is offering loans of up to $2,500 for food vendors who need capital to grow their business. Clients may use the fund to buy a food cart, purchase a “truck wrap” for marketing purposes, or even pay for their annual health department licenses. View our brochure HERE:
