Women’s First Loan

Special lower interest rates for women-owned small businesses

Typically used by women entrepreneurs and small business owners for business expansion, construction or renovation, inventory, working capital, or machinery or equipment upgrades. We work with you to learn your needs, craft the right funding solution, and support you every step of the way.

How it works

We provide loans with lower interest rates and flexible application criteria to woman-owned businesses in the Greater Philadelphia region who have been in business for at least two years. Loans are available up to $25,000. Please review the following, then click “Get Pre-Qualified” to get started.


Most woman-owned small businesses and women entrepreneurs who have been in business, for at least two years are eligible. Businesses providing predatory financial services, illegal, or illicit services are not eligible.


We look at the borrower’s credit report. There is no credit score cut-off and we will generally look at the content of credit reports for proof of recent improvement.

Without Entrepreneur Works as a solution we might have found it impossible to open our bake shop. It was really the starting point for getting us from truck to brick and mortar.
