Small Loans for Big Change

Did you know that over 220,000 small businesses in Arizona apply for financing each year? Cash flow is essential for seizing new opportunities and sustaining growth. Whether it’s managing inventory, improving cash flow, or investing in equipment, CIC is here to support your journey as a small business owner. Together, let’s fuel Arizona’s economic backbone and drive success.


If you are interested in applying for financing, please fill out our inquiry / pre-application form. This will help us learn more about which product offerings might apply to you, and will ensure you don’t waste your time by filling out the wrong application.

We help southern Arizona business owners take the next step in growing their business by providing financing when others won’t.

CIC is a financial empowerment nonprofit that gives members of our community who are often shut out and left behind in an imperfect capitalist system, access to the knowledge and financing they need to pursue new opportunities because a more equitable society is a more just society.

Equity begins with radical access to capital.

In addition to our small business lending we are always looking for innovative ways to bring capital to places shut out of the economy, from leveraging global crowdfunding resources, to reimagining how lending decisions are made through our BIPOC Community-Managed Loan Fund, and much more!
