Success Stories


Frank Burns of Burnsdesign in Norwood, MA sought Bentley’s Microcredit Initiative to receive a loan that will help him continue his current business. The money allowed him to participate in the Artist’s Professional Toolbox, a program that helped him develop business, artistic, and carpentry skills for his company. In the meantime, he received enough money to pay off his expenses and continue his current projects at work while still getting paid. He later received an award for being the first loan client to repay his loan in full.
