Since 1994, we’ve been helping our neighbors in Beadle and Spink counties open the door to their dreams. And now, we’d like to hear about yours. Whether you dream of homeownership, a cattle herd of your very own, or starting a business where you can be your own boss, Beadle and Spink Enterprise Community (BASEC) wants to help. We offer loans, technical assistance, and a one on one style that will help guide you through the process.



BASEC’s shared vision is that its communities be healthy, vital, and have the capacity to produce results they care about.

At BASEC, we believe that owning and operating your own business should be more than just a dream. That’s why we have a growing pool of financial products and in-house technical expertise to help you start or grow your business.

BASEC seeks to aid local community development entities (such as housing groups or community groups) in financing projects that will benefit the community.

We believe that access to quality housing is one of life’s most important BASECs. Whether you are looking to purchase a home, finance necessary home repairs, or simply build that addition you’ve always dreamed of, BASEC’s housing programs are here for you.

Our Youth Livestock program allows youth in BASEC’s district to make their initial investment in animal agriculture and become acquainted with the process of obtaining financing for such ventures.
