Are you having trouble getting the credit you need to start a business or pay for the training you need to get a job? Community Micro Lending is a non-profit society that makes loans to people who can’t get the credit they need from a bank or credit union. Loans are funded by members of the community through our online peer-to-peer model.
Interested in borrowing?
When you're ready, create a profile and fill out an Online Application.
Once your application has been approved, watch the community fill your loan by heading to the Lend page.
After your entrepreneur loan has been fully filled, you will be matched with a Mentor.
