We know: you don’t always know what you don’t know!

We also know that small business owners and nonprofit executives have plenty of work on your plates already without having to figure out loan applications and all their associated documents. That’s why our borrower services team exists: to make it easier for you to do more good.

We function as case managers to assess your business’ creditworthiness and its impact. From our assessment, our team will walk you through the different areas where investors and lenders would see red flags. Next, we’ll connect you to resources to strengthen those weak spots. Throughout the process, we check in to make sure your business is getting stronger and that you can clearly communicate the impact you make.

"Unlike other lending institutions that appear fixated on the bottom line, Mission Driven Finance seemed driven to propel our mission forward. Because of them, that’s exactly what we’ll do."
