We facilitate lending programs that increase affordability, increase access, and shift power 

Our Model


We enable lending programs that reverse traditional financial risk/return analysis to support people with affordable credit



Access & Power

We enable access to credit using non-traditional qualification criteria at the direction of partners who know their communities best

Borrowers: use resources to achieve their goals on their terms

Lending Partners: lead lending programs that center people in their communities


Community Credit Lab: provides support services to fill gaps where needed

Conveners & Funders: coordinate resources & partnerships


Investors: allocate impact-first capital to community lending programs

Systems Change

We work with our partners to effect lasting, systemic change by:


  • analyzing the root causes of inequality in the financial system

  • piloting and scaling examples of equitable lending programs

  • communicating examples effectively to our network and beyond

  • engaging in productive discourse and conversations

  • hosting quarterly discussions to explore new ideas together
