Meet the Borrowers in the Advance Portfolio
Advance makes capital available to tenacious small businesses and nonprofits that are committed to advancing local economic opportunity. We look for “tweens” — businesses that don’t fit SBA, microloan, or bank criteria and where our investment will be the tipping point enabling a project to proceed. As an engaged community partner, we use a social credit ideology to finance investments up to $500,000 in nonprofits, social enterprises, and small businesses at rates that encourage success.

The Advance Strategy is Mission Driven Finance’s flagship place-based strategy launched in 2017 in our home community of San Diego, California.
