“NEDCO and Community LendingWorks are leading the way to revitalize not only Springfield, but vital small businesses, the mom-and-pop operations that grow the local food, make the local products, and spend the local dollars that keep a town, and an economy, moving.” – Stuart Phillips, Co-owner of Red Wagon Creamery, CLW Client
