Chris and Jillian Soriano bought and then renovated their Haddon Heights house using a Fannie Mae HomeStyle Renovation loan to finance the improvements. The couple moved into the four-bedroom, two-bathroom house last summer "knowing we were going to rip out the kitchen," said Jillian Soriano, who wanted an open-concept cooking and dining area. "I wanted to take down the wall separating the kitchen and dining room and replace it with a butcher-block island with two sets of seating," she said.

In the tight-money world of small business owners, the occasion seemed more worthy of a bottle of bubbly than a steaming cup of Honduran dark roast. But java is the specialty of Green Street Coffee Roasters, the 17-month-old South Philadelphia company owned by brothers Chris and Tom Molieri. Early last week, the Molieris were celebrating a $10,000 loan for equipment they had just secured. They were also raising a cup to the entity that made it happen – Entrepreneur Works. It is a community development financial institution, or CDFI, one of a network of nearly 1,000 mostly nonprofit entities nationwide devoted to helping entrepreneurs overcome what stymies so many of them: access to capital.

The Chester County Commissioners on Tuesday approved giving a $1 million below-market-rate loan to UB Foods U.S. to further encourage the firm to establish a plant in Oxford Borough. Officials from UB Foods, which makes Keebler snacks, told borough residents last Thursday that the firm intends to buy the former Pepsico Unibev plant, which has been empty for three years. The commissioner's action follows a recommendation by the county's Industrial Development Authority, which actually is making the loan.

The Abington school board took less than a minute to borrow $3 million last week, voting without discussion to borrow the money from CoreStates Capital Markets Group. "And not a person here knows what it's for," grumbled Joseph Polya, a persistent board critic who attended the Tuesday night meeting. Actually, the board spelled out its plans for the loan as far back as June. It will go for repairs and improvements throughout the district, including purchase of computers, buses and windows, and for repairs to roofs, tennis courts and sidewalks.

Philadelphia Sheriff John Green said bar owner Sidney Booker gave him an $11,000 personal loan and then made him an offer he had to refuse. "He wanted a job, and in exchange I did not have to pay back the note," recalled Green. "I told him I don't sell jobs, and after that, he stopped speaking to me," added Green, who took over the 290-member Sheriff's Department in January. Green made his comments after reporters discovered that Booker had filed two suits in Small Claims Court alleging that Green failed to repay a total of $11,000 worth of loans that he was supposed to start repaying on Dec. 1. Booker, owner of the Stinger Bar on Broad Street near Belfield, said he would have no comment until after the suit is heard on Tuesday.

The Inquirer reported this week on the Delaware River Port Authority's role in financing the redevelopment of the RCA Victor building in Camden. As a strong advocate of the Camden waterfront and one of the first developers to participate in its revitalization, I have a perspective that differs dramatically from that of the report. In the late 1990s, when I first saw the RCA Victor building, I didn't just see a boarded-up, vandalized symbol of the blight that had come to define Camden.

A Chester County agency is suing a Philadelphia eye doctor in an effort to recover a $180,000 loan it made to the physician four years ago to open a health-care center in downtown West Chester. The center, which was to be a multidisciplinary practice owned and operated by minority physicians, never opened, and the building at 16 E. Gay St. stands empty. The loan was made to Neal E. Hall by the county Office of Housing and Community Development using federal Community Development Block Grant money.

Freeholder Joseph J. Milano agreed yesterday to call off his six-week-old feud with the Camden County sewerage authority and cast the deciding vote for the expansion of the regional sewer system. Milano, a maverick Democrat who joined with the three Republican freeholders in stalling a $39 million loan for the Camden County Municipal Utilities Authority (CCMUA), decided to switch his position after a late afternoon meeting with authority officials Herman B. Engelbert and Moses Jackson.

The Yardley Borough Council will hold a public hearing before deciding whether to guarantee a $1.8 million loan to pay for the recent expansion of a waste-water treatment plant. In a unanimous 7-0 vote, the council declined the Morrisville Sewer Authority's "push to make a hasty decision" Wednesday night and scheduled a public hearing instead. The council did vote to advertise an ordinance to guarantee the loan. "Just because we have voted to advertise the proposed ordinance does not guarantee that we will pass it. But it does provide us with some time to make sense of all of this," council President Susan Taylor said.

Defense lawyers lit into U.S. Rep. Chaka Fattah's hired political gun Thursday in a dogged cross-examination of the man who has emerged as a key witness in the government's racketeering conspiracy case. It remains to be seen whether their attacks on Thomas Lindenfeld, the chief strategist behind Fattah's failed 2007 mayoral bid, were enough to sway the federal jury weighing the fates of the congressman and his four codefendants. In six hours of testimony, Lindenfeld parsed words with the smoothness of a man who had spent the last three decades working in Washington politics.

Late in the 2007 mayoral race, U.S. Rep. Chaka Fattah sought a meeting with a very wealthy man - perhaps one of the few who could save his struggling campaign. Al Lord, CEO of Sallie Mae - then the largest student-loan financier in the world - had supported the congressman in the past. And at an April meeting in the lobby of the former Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia on Logan Square, Fattah made his pitch. "In terms of his prospects, it was bad news," Lord recalled before a federal jury Tuesday.

Pennsylvania has relaunched its popular program offering low-interest, fixed-rate financing for energy-efficient home improvements almost two years after it went dormant for lack of funding. State officials, including Treasury Secretary Timothy Reese and Department of Environmental Protection Secretary John Quigley, gathered at the South Philadelphia home of Lizzie Rothwell and John Beauregard on Thursday to announce resumption of the Keystone Home Energy Loan Program. Rothwell and Beauregard used a loan from the program to insulate their 800-square-foot South Seventh Street rowhouse and upgrade its systems two years ago. KeystoneHelp, as the program is known, provided loans totaling $110 million to 14,000 homeowners statewide in the eight years after it began in 2006.

So when Mr. Padgett's wife arrived at a Paris airport that month, she met not only her husband but also the sergeant and his wife, who had driven him to this once-in-a-lifetime reunion. During their time in Paris, the Padgetts dined at the restaurant high on the Eiffel Tower.

That old saying about the road to hell being paved with good intentions should be the epitaph for the Minority Venture Partnership, an unsuccessful program run by the defunct Philadelphia Commercial Development Corp. that failed miserably to deliver on its promise to create jobs. MVP was created in 1993 using $1.5 million in state money and $500,000 from PNC Bank. Gov. Robert Casey and Mayor Ed Rendell said another $8 million would be raised for the fund within a year, but that never happened.

I TOLD you in January that 2016 is my year of change. I've done two things to stay encouraged to stop worrying about my financial security. I picked a theme song (the Disney anthem "Let It Go") and a motivational maxim ("Sweet '16"). I asked you to share your own financial theme songs, and I've been inspired by the stories behind your selections. But folks, if you're burdened by student-loan debt, I have a song for you. It's catchy, comical, and potentially life-changing. The ditty is by New Orleans native David Augustine Jr. (above)
