Since you can not get a loan you may want to look into finding an investor or sponsor. There are still investors and angel investors and venture capitalist and you may be able to find funding help there.

As for grant programs or funding programs where you don't have to pay back the money yours is a slightly different case in that you aren't a new start-up. You should look into it from a "location" point of view meaning there may be a funding program that is related to that particular area.
