CDC Small Business Finance, founded in 1978 by Arthur H. Goodman, is a not-for-profit organization stimulating economic development by serving the financing needs of small businesses in California, Arizona and Nevada. Specifically, CDC offers fixed-rate, low down-payment, commercial real estate loans for the purchase of office and industrial buildings.
