Who We Are
The story of Outdoor Lending started six years ago when Jon was frustrated with the bank lending process of purchasing a piece of land he wanted. Because not all lenders want to loan money against recreational land, working with his established banker wouldn’t work. Jon eventually found the right lending partner for his property. The ensuing relationship with a prominent bank in the property’s geographic area allowed him to build a large, off-grid building, a pond, an orchard, and an additional habitat for whitetail and quail. The loan was specific to the property and did not interfere with his business.
Jon loves being outdoors. Bowhunting is at the top of the list but upland and waterfowl hunting with his dog are a close second. Having a place to spend time with his family outdoors is priceless.
