Quarterly News Update | 4th Quarter 2021

Greetings! After a tough year and a half of COVD impact, ACE has emerged as a leader in responsive and innovative small business financing in Georgia. Our 20 years in business has served us well and we are pleased to be the resource of choice for those who are typically not financed by traditional lenders. Since making our first small business loan in 2000, ACE has reached the milestone of having deployed more than $114 million in loans to over 2,000 businesses that have created or retained more than 14,000 jobs for Georgians. We’ve come a long way! But the struggle is far from over.

Through our partner organizations and funders, we assist tiny start-ups and large, existing businesses – modest mom-and-pop enterprises as well as veteran, seasoned C.E.O.s – by making loans with generous repayment terms and affordable interest rates. For small companies in a vulnerable stage of growth, an ACE loan can mean the difference between success and failure, and for larger companies, our assistance can enhance competitiveness and sustainability.

We’re pleased to share a few other recent achievements below:
