Helping Maine businesses get the financing they need.

The Southern Maine Finance Agency (SMFA), formerly known as the Biddeford Saco Area Economic Development Corporation (BSAEDC), promotes sustainable economic prosperity though regional business lending. We work collaboratively with communities, financial institutions and local, regional, state and federal organizations to offer a variety of financing options and support to Maine businesses.

SMFA helps businesses, large and small, by providing gap financing for projects that require cash, fixed asset financing, start-up/working capital and real estate acquisitions and development. We now offer SBA 504 Loans, further enhancing our loan options for clients.

We offer patient, flexible financing that a traditional bank loan would not be able to offer a business.”
