Financing Your Business with a Loan over $250,000

 

Our financing helps businesses startup and grow. We’re committed to helping you succeed, and to forming long-term partnerships with our customers. 

Rather than selling you a loan you don’t need or can’t afford, we take the time to get to know you and your business. We make sure we understand the opportunity, the risks, and how you’ll repay the loan.   

As a non-profit, mission-driven lender, we’re different. We specialize in working with businesses that can’t access traditional bank financing. We’re also able to provide financing for nonprofits, including bridge financing for capital campaigns and financing for real estate purchase.

Simple loans and honest advice

Our lending team works closely with entrepreneurs, providing support at all stages of the business journey. We’ll give you straightforward answers about your prospects for approval and tell you what we’ll need to close your loan. If your books aren’t in perfect order, we can even help you get organized for underwriting.

Talk with our Lending Team
If it looks like a potential fit, a Craft3 lender will reach out to talk about your intake form and determine whether we can proceed. At this stage, topics of discussion may include: your business plan, uses of funds, projections, and collateral. Put simply, we want to learn who are you, what you want to do with the funds and how will you pay the loan back.
