Rural Lending

Work with a familiar face who knows you and your business.

ECDI covers all 88 counties in Ohio with high-touch, personalized service. We take the time to get to know, and invest in, each entrepreneur, by providing access to capital, along with entrepreneur training and one-on-one business mentoring.


For our clients who own and operate Main Street businesses, it's often most important to work with someone you trust. And any of our clients can tell you, we're happy to put the work in to be an advisor you can rely on.
