The Neighbor Fund

The Neighbor FundWe're very excited about the launch of the Neighbor Fund, a community-based small business revolving loan fund for businesses in Bayview. Funds in this loan are socially underwritten; creditworthiness is validated through existing community relationships and not through credit scores. The loans are small and are geared towards existing businesses with revenues between $50k and 2MM.

We look forward to working with the Neighbor fund in the coming years to help create new locally owned wealth in Bayview. You can check them out online at http://www.neighborfund.org/
