AAFE’s small business affiliate, Renaissance Economic Development Corporation, has established an Emergency Small Business Relief Loan Fund to support businesses in our community hard hit by the coronavirus scare. Funding is allowing Renaissance to provide financial assistance to business owners facing the biggest challenge since the devastating 9/11 attacks two decades ago.  Your support will strengthen our campaign to sustain our treasured small businesses during this difficult time.
