Community Micro Lending is a non-profit society that connects local lenders to local borrowers in the Southwest BC region.  

Local borrowers are people who want to turn their idea and passion into a livelihood but can’t get the credit they need from a bank or credit union.

Local lenders are people who want to strengthen the fabric of the local economy by supporting a local small-scale entrepreneur.  

Together, we are transforming lives.
