Atchison, KS – The City of Atchison’s E-Community Program has approved a new loan to Wanderlust, LLC, a holding company that leases space to the Werring Law Office located at 414 N 5th Street, near the Atchison County Courthouse. The $75,000 in loan proceeds will help finance a renovation of the office space on the ground floor as well as an expansion and remodel of an apartment on the second floor. Additional financing for the project was provided by Bank of Atchison.

Since January of 2017, the Atchison E-Community Program has been offering loans for small business startups, expansions, and acquisitions. Everyday businesses like restaurants, cleaning services, small manufacturers, daycare facilities, construction companies, retail stores, etc… can use this locally controlled, revolving loan fund as gap financing to make their small business dreams come true.
The funding for the E-Community Program is created through the sale of entrepreneurship tax credits, which are allocated to NetWork Kansas by the Kansas State Legislature.
