Gap Financing Loans

PCDC can sometimes take the risk that a bank cannot to supplement the financing needed for a business to expand, start up or, or transition. Gap Financing is defined as the difference between the cost of a project and the combination of money available from the owner and the bank. 

Project cost - Owner’s Equity - Bank Financing = Gap
