Pioneering New Solutions to Complex Challenges

Technology has both helped and hurt the community development finance industry as many small business owners seek online options for obtaining business loans. Unfortunately, some of these options are high-interest loans that can be unsustainable for fledgling businesses. CRF is using technology-driven solutions to address this need for accessible, affordable business financing, creating an entirely new marketplace for responsible small business loans.

With its technology solutions, CRF is leading the industry down a path toward greater transparency and choice for small business owners, while giving lenders more tools to enhance their lending activities. For us, it’s not technology for its own sake: it’s expanding the opportunity for both small business owners and lenders to make a difference in their communities.
