Having begun operations in 1981 as an SBA 504 loan company IBG has a long history of providing alternative financing resources that complement the more traditional products available through conventional lenders.
IBG’s various programs including the SBA 504 loan program and the New Markets Tax Credit Program, all enhance rather than duplicate or compete with the lending community that it serves. Both the Board and the staff are dedicated to the goal of assisting small business customers throughout the state of Iowa in their financing needs. Nearly 7,000 new jobs, furthermore, have resulted from its participation in more than 650 Iowa small business loans to date.
IBG is a certified development company “CDC” that has achieved a high-level certification with the SBA in administering the government’s premier loan program geared toward expanding businesses (504).
