“CDFIs are a critical economic lifeline to small business owners, especially during periods of prolonged economic weakness,” says Bob An- nibale, global director of Citi Microfinance and Community Development. “In many cases, they can make the difference between whether or not a small business struggles to survive or expands and creates new jobs, supporting local economic growth and the community.” While small business owners who work with CDFIs hail from a wide range of industries and geographies, they all share one thing in com- mon: a need for quick financing that is not fully
being met by traditional banks. For example, entrepreneurs in the heart of Big Sky country in Montana received two CDFI loans totaling more than $100,000 that enabled them to get their new lumber operation up and running, while the owner of a preschool in New Orleans borrowed money from a local CDFI to fund vital repairs to her building in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. In coastal Maine, the owner of a specialty seafood company was able to access significant venture capital to expand the company’s distribu- tion nationwide, while continuing to create jobs. In Austin, Texas, the owner of a small construc-
tion company received a $40,000 loan to pay for materials and other up-front costs associated with the industry. In all these instances, the need for affordable loans was met with speed and flex- ibility and was often accompanied by invaluable entrepreneurial education and low-cost training as well as technical assistance in branding and marketing. Citi recently launched the Communities at Work Fund, a new $200 million fund that will provide financing to CDFIs in urban and rural areas in all 50 states. The fund was created in partnership with the Calvert Foundation and the Opportunity
Finance Network (OFN), two organizations expert in CDFIs. To learn more about the Communities at Work fund or to find out if your small business can benefit from the program and how to apply, visit www.communitiesatworkfund.com
. To find out a local CDFI and enquire about a loan, visit www.communityinvestingcenterdb.org
. The current economic climate may be chal- lenging to entrepreneurs, but alternative financing sources like CDFIs can help small businesses keep their doors open - and keep thousands of Ameri- cans on the job.

Lindy’s Gourmet Deli ‘Phantom-Approved’
Linda Balles opened Lindy’s Gourmet Deli in 1996 with a vision of serving a better alternative to fast food—it would be good food made fast. “I just didn’t feel good about the fast food options available.” One visit to Lindy’s will convince you that fast food can be delicious, too! Recently voted Best Deli, Lindy’s pride comes from serving sandwiches made with fresh baked breads and the highest quality ingredients. Nothing is ordinary about this deli; even the fries are hand-cut and the soups are homemade. To change things up, try their thin-crust pizzas with the gourmet salad bar—it’s the best in the area. When the Phantom Gourmet made a surprise visit in 2003, it was a dream come true. Lindy’s was aired on Phantom’s segment of “The salute to
the sandwich.” Lindy’s became so successful that Linda’s husband, Mike, left his corporate job to make Lindy’s even better. There’s a family-friendly attitude that comes from Linda and Mike. The dining room boasts original paintings by local artist Bill Swank. One of the most remarkable ones is the wall mural rendition of Van Gogh’s Night Time Café. It’s a comfortable place to have lunch, whether alone or during a business meeting. Lindy’s also caters to area businesses and
private functions. From continental breakfasts to lunch with homemade cookies for dessert, Lindy’s is the place to call.

Chris Bencivenga, owner of Toe, Tap N’ Tights in Salem, has been a successful businesswoman for the past 15 years. Chris began her business in 1995 because her daughter, Corey, had been dancing for years, and she felt that dancewear was overpriced and she could provide dance attire at a more reasonable price. She was determined to start a business from the ground up that would provide the community with reasonably priced merchandise, as well as extraordinary customer service.
Determined to reach her goal, Chris delivered a business with a wide selection and the lowest prices around, which stands to be commended. Through time, effort, networking, marketing,
and support from family, Toe, Tap N’ Tights has flourished into a thriving company. Chris has become an inspiration to those with aspirations of one day opening up a business of their own. Currently located at 5 Kelly Road in Salem, Toe,
Tap N’ Tights offers a full line of Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Pointe, Hip Hop, and Ballroom shoes, along with tights, leotards, and a full array of other dance clothing and accessories. They carry such brands as Capezio, Bloch, Bodywrappers, Motionwear, and many more. In addition to dancewear, they also carry supplies for Gymnastics, Cheerleading, and Ice Skating, all of which can be accessed via their Website at toetapntights.com
