Job Function: Lending/Loan Operations


Genesis LA is a nonprofit community loan fund with a mission to deliver financial solutions that advance economic and social opportunities in underserved communities. Founded in 1998 out of the office of former Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan, Genesis LA is certified by the U.S. Department of the Treasury as a Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI). Since our inception, we have deployed more than $500 million in capital, which has leveraged over $2 billion in investments into community and economic development projects. These projects created or retained over 6,900 permanent jobs; serve over 100,000 clients a year; house 2,000 families; and provide goods and services to approximately 700,000 low-income people. We invest in these projects through two programs. First, our Genesis Community Investment Fund (GCIF) is currently capitalized at $100 million and is used to make flexible loans ranging in size from $100,000 to $5 million. Second, we have deployed over $350 million in New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) allocation, which leverages other capital and is invested into large real estate projects serving low-income communities.

All of Genesis LA’s investments must demonstrate both financial viability and tangible community benefits to low-income people. Genesis LA’s business model is unique in that it is focused on providing the type of financing that many other lenders cannot provide and it invests in new and innovative approaches to community and economic development. Our team works hands-on with nonprofits, small businesses, and women and minority-owned enterprises, by blending our financial products with capacity building services that can turn unique challenges and/or innovative ideas into viable, financeable projects. We often marry these services with customized, flexible capital products that can solve financing challenges not being addressed by others in the market.
