Thriving small businesses will always improve a struggling community
Level the playing field
It’s not for lack of great ideas. It’s not for lack of desire. It’s for lack of financing.
Many would-be achievers, entrepreneurs, and business leaders in low-income communities lack opportunity simply because they lack access to financing.
We’re changing that.
CRF levels the playing field by providing capital to small businesses in low-income areas. The result is a growing list of thriving businesses that create and retain jobs where we need them most. We’ve found ways to continue lending at times when many groups have not, and as the largest provider of capital to small businesses in poor communities, our entrepreneurial zeal, strong relationships, innovative tools, and sophisticated financial model set us apart.
