Welcome to Lendio Utah!
Small Business Loans With a Personal Touch
Helping you turn your small business into a community cornerstone.
Utah is known for its slopes: Deer Valley, Canyons, Park City, Snowbird, Brighton – the list goes on. And when Utahns aren’t skiing or boarding, they’re climbing some of the nation’s prettiest peaks at Arches, Zion, or Bryce Canyon. If there’s one thing The Beehive State knows how to do well, it’s enjoy the best that America has to offer.
In recent years, though, Utah has gained another kind of notoriety. The economic boon produced by an influx of tech and creative companies has prompted the greater Salt Lake City area to be nicknamed “Silicon Slopes.” And with half of the private workforce employed by small businesses and one of the lowest unemployment rates in the country, Utah is the preferred location for many of America’s small business owners.
But with all this business opportunity comes a challenge: finding financing. That’s where Jason Kirkham at Lendio Utah comes in. Already a cornerstone of the Salt Lake City community, Lendio is now giving business owners throughout Utah even more access to loan options. Getting funded has never been easier for Utah small businesses.

Jason received numerous awards while working for the government including The President’s Council on Integrity and Efficiency Award for Excellence for 2008, Division Auditor of the Year for 2009, and Audit of the Year. After 13 years working for the government, Jason decided it was time to pursue his passion in helping small businesses.
Jason moved to Salt Lake City 5 years ago to coach small business owners on how to improve their businesses. While working with business owners he identified an opportunity to help them reduce their expenses to increase profitability. So, in 2016 he partnered with another business to launch a new company to help business owners get better prices from vendors and suppliers. In many cases reducing expenses by up to 40%.
Jason is very involved in the business community attending networking events across the Wasatch front. Jason is currently serving as an Ambassador and on the Board of Directors for the West Jordan Chamber of Commerce and as an advisor to the Utah African American Chamber of Commerce.
Utah may have one of the top economies in the country, but small businesses still struggle to find the financing they need to grow and operate their business. Jason is excited to use his education and experience to continue helping businesses by providing the financing they need with Lendio.
Jason and his wife Autumn have four children: Scott, Emily, Kate, and Blake. When not at work, they enjoy spending time together and with extended family in Central and Southern Utah and going on family vacations.Meet Jason Kirkham
