CIC COVID-19 Emergency Loan Success Story!

In mid-March, as our country was facing the unprecedented reality of rapid closure to ensure public safety the Community Investment Corporation loan team understood exactly what that meant for small businesses, revenue loss that could potentially lead to permanent closure.

Within days the CIC team developed the COVID-19 Emergency Microloan product and began offering access to two community-backed loan products, one from Kiva Tucson and one from Wefunder, each designed to bridge small businesses through the unknown future.

In addition, CIC invested $200,000 of our loan portfolio to support these small businesses either for the $10,000 microloan product or the help businesses reach a time-sensitive community-backed loan goal. 

Eclipse Clinical Research received a CIC COVID-19 Emergency Microloan and we are thrilled to have had this offering make all the difference to the business.

I'd like to send a special thank you to Brian from the Loan Team who was wonderful to work with and kept us updated through every step of the process" Felice Anderson, President
