Small Business Programs
We build funds to support the big dreams of small businesses
Addressing credit gaps across the US
In collaboration with our partners, we have structured several small business recovery funds to support community-based businesses across the US. These programs bring together state and local governments, banks, corporations, foundations, and Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs) to scale affordable lending. Throughout the pandemic, CDFIs have been a financial lifeline for small businesses and nonprofits, especially those owned by people of color and women or that operate in low-income communities. The recovery funds provide crucial financing to small businesses.
Access to affordable credit is key to creating an inclusive, diverse, and more equitable economy.
