Want updates for your small business on COVID-19? Check out this page.

MaineStream Finance offers free one-on-one consultation and advising to help create a business plan for a new business or refine one that could use some analytical help. We provide technical assistance for better marketing, financial questions, loan preparation, and many other business issues.

We understand that the business plan is a living document, an essential aspect of building or growing a business. We bring another set of eyes to your existing operation or to your ideas for a new enterprise. We generally work with businesses with ten employees or fewer.

Our funding comes from a variety of sources. Our services help stimulate economic activity and grow employment.

For more information about our business consultation, or for help with a business plan or to inquire about a business loan, please contact one of our business consultants. Your business may also be eligible to save through a savings account, called a Family Development Account (FDA).
