Here’s how it works, and it’s easy!

What responsible lending means for your business:

California Small Business Loan Match brings together dozens of lenders across the state of California, most of which are certified as Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs). All of our partner lenders are considered responsible, non-predatory lenders.

CDFIs are frequently preferred by the small business community because:

 

  • CDFIs are community-based organizations that offer loans with similar interest rates and terms to the ones offered by commercial banks, but who specialize in helping borrowers who don’t meet the rigid lending criteria of traditional banks — for example, small businesses that have a lower credit score, a prior defaulted loan, or no up-front collateral.
  • CDFIs specialize in helping people in lower-income communities.
  • CDFIs offer a much more flexible and affordable repayment plan — unlike online lending or Merchant Cash Advance (MCA) loans, which tend to be very expensive (with high-interest rates and additional fees) and can require very fast repayment (some requiring you to pay back in just 12 months).

Suisse Imports

"I needed capital to purchase inventory for my beer-importing business Suisse Imports, where I curate beers from all over the world for my suppliers so that people can enjoy them in the Los Angeles area. Working with a CDFI like Accessity was very streamlined, and the interest rates were similar. I am grateful this loan helped me get the ball rolling on my dream business."
