Small Business Microlending

Unlike other lenders, we invest in you.

At Metro Community Development, we offer a microlending option of up to $50,000 to help you develop your business. Unlike other lenders, we invest in you with our microloan, and not your potential to make us money. We’re interested in your development as a business, and your success.

Microlending Program Guidelines

Our program guidelines vary on an individual basis. We typically look at the viability of your endeavor, and if the microloan is a smart move for all involved. Ultimately, we’re here to help you – for a more established company, we may lend the money, up to $50,000 at terms and interest rates beneficial for all. In other cases, we may refer you to our BizBox or BizThrive programs.

Should I apply?

Yes, you absolutely should apply. Our decisions are based on a host of factors that are individualized versus traditional lenders. Metro Community Development is a Community Development Financial Institution, and our goal is focused on lending to improve the community and your business. Once you apply, a loan specialist will get back with you to discuss options.
