We invest in education to enhance the economic and social potential for students in under-resourced communities

Access to quality and affordable education and childcare is fundamental to the economic potential of individuals and families. Education is a catalyst for financial independence, which furthers community development and improves gender equity. We provide flexible capital to our borrowers, enabling them to work with their clients and establish quality and affordable educational opportunities within their communities.

By investing in organizations and funds that provide opportunities for low-income students to receive quality education, we are supporting their potential to bring economic stability to their families and further the development of their communities.

Financed by our borrower Wildflower, the Boston-area Roxbury Roots is the dream of its founders, Renee Jolley and Kendall Allen. It grew from a small, home-based program, and now Roxbury Roots will be able to serve more families as it opens a beautiful, community-embedded microschool in the heart of the Roxbury neighborhood. Roxbury Roots is an Afrocentric school that honors the passions and interests of young students, seeking to expose children to languages, including American Sign Language and Kiswahili, and positive images of people from the Black diaspora, to instill a sense of pride and empowerment in their students.
