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.

    Chris moved to Victoria in 2015 and has been working steadily to build up his life.  He is now ready to take a major step towards a brighter future by beginning the carpenter apprentice program at Camosun College so he can work at a higher level in construction. 

    Chris has had some ups and downs in life including launching a business that didn't work out and experiencing a lot of success managing a business in Toronto. He had some previous credit issues but he is working on resolving them now. 

    Chris has learned a lot along the way, he knows what he wants to do and is really moving forward in  his life. For over a year Chris has been working in construction and he feels that doing the carpentry apprentice program is a great fit for him and his career path.
