Gateway was established in 2009 to help fill the need for non-traditional loan products and development consulting services to under-served areas throughout the state of Missouri and in Southern Illinois and Eastern Kansas. Since that time, Gateway has received Certification from the U.S. Department of the Treasury as a Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI), established a solid client base in both the lending and consulting fields, and has provided unique investment opportunities for financial institutions.

The Gateway staff looks forward to discussing its wide array of services and opportunities with potential and current clients and investors.

Had it not been for the receipt of this funding, we simply would not have been able to begin our project.
