Passion Projects


The Cayuga Women's Business Trust

Established to assist women in entrepreneurial ventures, by making collateral and interest rate subsidies available, to secure small business loans.  The fund is modeled after micro-loan programs that operate in Africa and Asia where groups of women support each other, one at a time, to start and grow a business.

To become part of this effort, make a check payable to The Cayuga Women's Business Trust and send it to Cayuga Lake National Bank, 3 Cayuga Street, Union Springs, NY 13160.
