CDFIs Create Opportunity for All
Community development financial institutions (CDFIs) are a different kind of lender. We are private financial institutions that are located in rural, urban, and Native communities nationwide. We provide responsible, affordable loans and other types of financing to people who are unable to get it from a mainstream bank.
CDFIs are driven by a mission to provide financial opportunities to all people, including women, people of color, and those living in low-income communities. CDFIs offer financing for small businesses, housing, communities, and more — with products ranging from relief and recovery loans to financing for working capital — as well as technical expertise to help you succeed.
We also help businesses get out from under high payments from “predatory” payday, car title, and other high-cost, unscrupulous loans.
