CDC Small Business Finance and Capital Impact Partners Announce Alliance

CDC Small Business Finance has always evolved its services and offerings in order to best serve both small business owners and their communities. As we looked to the future, we saw a tremendous opportunity to do more, give more and make a bigger difference.  With that in mind, more than a year ago, we began conversations with Capital Impact Partners.  Together, we recognized how our similar visions and complementary expertise, services and financing products could create a change that neither of us could accomplish independently.

With a shared focus on economic empowerment and equitable wealth creation, CDC Small Business Finance and Capital Impact have the unique ability to deliver a suite of lending products and programs that holistically support communities to be strong, vibrant, and healthy places of opportunity.  Watch the CEO Conversations Video Series.

In 2020 we continued our commitment to being a strong voice for the small business community.  We served on several California small business and economic development committees, that focused on supporting small businesses, particularly BIPOC-owned businesses.  In addition, we took a leadership role in designing and improving the Community Advantage Recovery Loan (CARL).
