Business Lender
“My goal is to make sure that people of color, women, veterans, and other excluded entrepreneurs have the resources they need to shape the future they envision.”

Edwin works closely with entrepreneurs who need financing up to $250,000 as well as community partners who support these entrepreneurs. He welcomes the opportunity to make a lasting impact in people's lives and help build a better future that includes the most disadvantaged.

Craft3’s mission resonates with Edwin because “it recognizes that we must be intentional about how we address systemic issues of racism and the climate crisis. I have personally experienced the negative impacts of systemic racism and I think it is all of our responsibility to ensure we build a better future.”

Edwin previously worked as a community loan officer at Mercy Corps Northwest, during which time he would frequently partner with Craft3. Edwin loves to read, exercise, explore the outdoors, and practice archery. With three young boys he’s focused on making sure that “my children and all our children have a better world than the one I grew up in.”
