New loan product offers 0% interest and easy funding for New Mexico and Texas contractors

May 16

Opening Doors to Opportunity 

Small business owners Shannon and Jerry White remember their humble beginnings. The couple started Santa Fe Doors in a garage, and now the company operates with 12,000 square feet of manufacturing space and more than 30 employees. The company has grown beyond the original concept of supplying local homebuilders with custom southwest-style doors to be a national leader in the construction of entry and interior doors, gates, barn doors, and both custom and commercial projects.

Shannon and Jerry have worked on high profile projects across the country, including a home for an ABC News broadcaster, a Malibu home for an Australian musician, and a custom home in western Colorado for the CEO of the Discovery Network of Channels. 


Project-based contractors like Shannon and Jerry need access to capital for equipment, hiring, inventory, and transportation costs associated with each project. DreamSpring is partnering with the U.S. Economic Development Administration to offer a new loan product specifically for contractors in New Mexico and Texas.  


The Fast Forward loan provides short-term financing for 1-3 months at 0% interest, empowering contractors to move projects ahead despite rising costs. At DreamSpring, we believe that accessing capital is key to growing a small business, and we are here to make sure that contractors can complete projects on time and on budget.  


Fast Forward Details 

The special Fast Forward loan program is specifically for contractors, service providers, project-based businesses, and construction industry businesses in Texas and New Mexico. Funds can be utilized for working capital to complete projects or get new initiatives off the ground.  

Borrowers will be asked to submit a project cost breakdown, executed contract, and profit projection. This 0% loan program offers up to $10,000 to eligible borrowers, and program participants must have a minimum credit score of 650. If you have a project in need of a boost, Fast Forward could be the answer. 

Fast Forward funds offer project-based support and can be used to purchase new tools and equipment, re-strock consumables and building materials, hire subcontractors and skilled laborers, and inventory additions. Investments in marketing collateral and website services, purchase of a company vehicle, and technology purchases are also eligible under the program.
