Carmen & Ginger

Congratulations to Carmen & Ginger in Providence, Rhode Island, on the close of their MicroNOW loan from CIC. These small (under $15k) loans are ideal for working capital in just about any industry, but they are especially helpful for small retailers with specific needs.  

Carmen & Ginger is a delightful, vintage retail shop located within The Arcade in downtown Providence. The Arcade is the oldest shopping mall in America, built in 1828, and is on the National Register of Historic Places. It was renovated in 2013 to house retail, services, and restaurants on the first level, with the upper two levels converted to residential micro-lofts. It’s the perfect location for a vintage shop, completing the magical experience of browsing and nostalgia!
