The Mission of LiftFund
To provide credit and services to small businesses and entrepreneurs who do not have access to loans from commercial sources and to provide leadership and innovation to the microlending industry.
Community Microlending & CDFI Loans
LiftFund is a designated community development financial institution, or CDFI. CDFI’s are working in communities across the United States to provide affordable, responsible credit, create and sustain jobs, and to stabilize communities. CDFI loans finance community businesses, including small businesses, microenterprises, nonprofit organizations, commercial real estate, and affordable housing.
We have the highest rating (four stars) awarded by Charity Navigator, an online charity evaluation database, and we are a member of the Opportunity Finance Network, Association for Enterprise Opportunity, and the National Association for Latino Community Asset Builders.
