The LDC Helps Build


The LDC is able to provide a variety of loan programs that can assist with most needs a small business could have.


The LDC and its programs are structured to address the needs of underserved segments of the community.


The LDC participates in many entrepreneurship activities with community resources, such as SCORE, the Small Business Development Center, and the Women’s Business Center.

What Our Clients Are Saying

Great organization to work with. I highly suggest working with them when starting a small business.

LDC has been a FABULOUS resource for me and my business, Charles Towne Child Development Center! I have worked with other entities before and nothing comes close to working with the LDC! Through the LDC, I have had access to bookkeeping assistance and assistance with marketing my business…. things I was never offered before. The LDC staff is very supportive and I know they want my business to succeed!!!!

The LDC was instrumental in assisting our business, Coastal Coffee Roasters, build a commercial kitchen within our establishment. They were helpful at every turn along the way. They continue to assist whenever they can.  Thank you.
