Under-resourced communities need better opportunities to gain safe, affordable loans or investments.

Entrepreneurs and small business owners often have to resort to predatory lenders or go without capital they need for their businesses to succeed. That is why we support community development financial institutions (CDFIs), which not only provide financial services in underserved areas, but also are driven by their mission to connect with communities and cultures. As they increase access to financial products and services like savings accounts, low-interest loans, and fair lending, our grantees can offer local, innovative, and flexible lending practices that meet the unique needs of their community, and help small business owners more safely build their business.
