For Business Owners and Entrepreneurs.

Micro-businesses include self-employed, start-up, home-based, and other small businesses. They play a crucial role in powering our local, state, and national economies.

Who We Are

Nebraska Enterprise Fund is a state-wide program providing business development services and funding to micro and small businesses.

Programs Offered


NEF provides flexible lending products to businesses and programs across Nebraska and Southwest Iowa to support your capital needs.


Trainings like our Credit Building Program are designed to help assist clients and provide more learning opportunities.


Along with training, NEF also offers one-to-one mentoring covering a variety of business, marketing, and financial planning and analysis.


“I found in a short time that NEF’s value to the business community goes far beyond the amazing financial/loan programs because they value the growth and sustainability of the businesses they work with.”
