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.
Interested in borrowing?
When you're ready, create a profile and fill out an Online Application.
Once your application has been approved, watch the community fill your loan by heading to the Lend page.
After your entrepreneur loan has been fully filled, you will be matched with a Mentor.
