Our clients come from different backgrounds and professions—construction, retail, faith-based and educational institutions–but all are small business owners and nonprofits who needed the access to credit that we provide. Nearly 75% of our loans go to economically disadvantaged, minority or women-owned businesses.
We do more than just crunch numbers to determine to whom we lend money. We take the whole picture into account including the organization’s social impact. Having a “social impact” means improving the social fabric and well-being of the community. Nearly 30% of our clients are in the education and family support industry.
Our loans have helped fund Knowbility to provide equal access to technology for people with disabilities, Ecology Action to keep up with its environmental advocacy activities, Bennu Coffee to open their coffeehouse in East Austin, and the Sterling Classical School to expand their pre-kindergarten classes.
