Economic Development Testimonials

We have used the services of DFTC several times in the past ten years. The financial analysis and technical assistance that DFTC has provided has been first rate quality and has contributed to a large extent to the success of this Agency. Thanks to the training and guidance of DFTC, our loan officers have made top rate loans and assisted communities throughout this region. Our production rates are off the charts and our delinquency rate is almost nonexistent. This fantastic performance is due in part to the financial analysis training and guidance the loan officers received from DFTC. We thank DFTC for the training and guidance they have provided and plan on using them as often as the opportunity presents itself in the future.

“In February of 2009, DFTC came to the great state of Nebraska to provide Business Credit Analysis training for the Department of Economic Development’s Business Development staff. Attendees ran the gamut from those with more financial background experience to relatively green, newly hired staff with little such background. In spite of the differences in knowledge and understanding of the subject matter, the presenter was able to keep the attention of participants. This was done while making the material more easily understandable for those who struggled. Having personally attended other trainings on this subject, I would recommend DFTC as a trainer of choice. They’ve proven that they can be flexible in customizing programs to the needs of specific clients which translates into better and more cost effective training.

At the conclusion of the training, the attendees were unanimous in recommending that DFTC would be a good fit to offer the Business Credit Analysis training to community economic developers across the state.”

"Development Finance Training and Consulting's (DFTC) services to the Greater Portland Council of Government (GPCOG) have been a real asset for the last eight years. As a small business loan provider, we needed expertise in analyzing loan requests and structuring loan packages for GPCOG's Revolving Loan Fund. DFTC has provided GPCOG with that expertise and has been successful in interacting with traditional lenders in the Southern Maine area as well as private non-profit providers of capital. Additionally, DFTC has shown real communications skills in presenting information to and interacting with our Loan Committee, which includes a diverse cross-section of individuals representing business and community interests in our service area. I would highly recommend DFTC's consulting services to other organizations whose economic development mission includes the management of revolving loan funds."
Neal Allen
Executive Director, GPCOG
