Rooted in entrepreneurial spirit
CDC Small Business Finance was founded in 1978 by entrepreneur and community activist Arthur H. Goodman. With a vision for economic development opportunities for all, Art committed himself to helping struggling communities build a better local economy.
Thanks to Art’s passion and dedication, and the team of entrepreneurial-minded executives and staff members after him, CDC Small Business Finance has grown into the nation’s leading nonprofit lender.
"When I tell people how I bought a building and was got a loan they are surprised. For me, it is the American dream."

"I got a lot of support along the way and a lot of questions answered. I wasn't wondering what was next, it was very planned out and easy and amazing, amazingly helpful."
Cindy Cate, Hello Birdie Nail & Lash Lab
"We didn't know anything about this process so to be able to ask questions and not feel like a dummy was really really great, CDC Small Business Finance really helped us through that."
