Ancon Debt; NDFCU loan

What is our back up plan if loan from NDFCU? NDFCU has been slow to respond to GM’s emails. What about a new member loan campaign for new member-owners. Target new members that have not been a part of a member loan campaign before.


Suggestion to try loan or grant from First Source.

GM will call NDFCU regarding hold up of loan. Mike will call NDFCU (he is member of NDFCU) to talk to someone about what is slowing out loan down.


A new (small) targeted member-loan campaign. Nathan and Marie are willing to help. Possibly get help from new marketing person.
