Mike Conway, executive director of MVEDC, says while the first-half numbers are lower than first-half 2013 numbers, he still expects to finish the year on pace with 2013.
"We never count the loans until they're closed and disbursed. We're expecting that number to be much more in line with what it was last year," Conway says.
In 2013, MVEDC helped to provide $5.26 million in loans to 31 companies.
This year, most of the work has been with sectors MVEDC has worked with the past couple of years, Conway says.
"We're seeing growth in all areas that we've seen growth in the last two or three years, primarily manufacturing, commercial activity in the service as well as retail sectors. And we're still seeing interest in the second- and third-tier suppliers to the shale activity," Conway says, in addition to development in logistics and transportation.
The only area that has receded is the use of MVEDC railroads to transport goods. Such use is down 65% from last year, he says, but most of that loss came from one company MVEDC serves that cut back on rail shipments.
If it goes through, the biggest loan MVEDC will make this year is $2 million to help fund construction of a hotel.
Because it's so early, Conway explains, he can't provide specifics other than it "is in the area," is associated with a chain and will cost $8 million to build.
"If you look at our overall lending activity for the past 16 months, loans have averaged a little over $100,000 per project," he says.

"From our perspective, what we're seeing from businesses that want to spend and raise capital is the uncertainty of the long-term economy," said Michael Conway, executive director of the Mahoning Valley Economic Development Corp. "They are delaying certain projects until they get some certainty that there's going to be more than just a short-term fix."
Regardless of any deal, Conway added that such uncertainty will likely remain for at least more days.
MVEDC is a partnership of public and private interests focused on the revitalization of the Mahoning Valley. Conway said the shutdown has halted about six projects because funding through its U.S. Small Business Administration loan program was put on hold when the government closed its doors.
He said all types of businesses across a variety of industries have expressed a reluctance and uncertainty over the politicking in Washington.
"I can't say any one industry has been impacted more adversely than another," he said.
