We can be creative and flexible with our loans because
We are a SBA (Small Business Administration) Preferred Lender. Unlike the big banks, we’re excited about working with small businesses. We have a special interest in providing small businesses loans and helping them grow. We applied to join the SBA’s network and we’ve been screened, evaluated, and stamped with the SBA’s approval.
We offer FAME (Finance Authority of Maine) guaranteed loans, specializing in the 3Fs: Forestry, Fishing, and Farming. This initiative’s goal is to provide access to capital so you can leverage Maine’s natural resources. This program provides subordinate (gap) financing to assist new entrants, and/or existing companies undertaking a project to materially expand their operations in the forestry, fishing, and farming industries.
We make the whole loan experience fast and painless. Our experienced staff often makes decisions within 48 hours.

I went to Acadia with an interest in opening my own restaurant. They were with me every step of the way by helping me buy my property, setting up my business accounts, and supporting a subsequent addition. Now, each time I go to the credit union, I feel well taken care of. I’m happy I pursued my dreams and I’m grateful that I have Acadia on my side. Barry P., Restaurant owner & member since 1991
