Small Business Lending

Community Investment Corporation (CIC) is committed to helping small businesses in Southern Arizona thrive and succeed by providing access to capital through non-traditional financing resources at competitive interest rates with flexible terms. We believe small businesses have the ability to transform both the people they employ and communities they serve.  Focusing on job creation, income generation and the business needs of our borrowers, CIC is able to provide lending solutions for organizations of every size.

Small businesses are often underestimated because of their size, but they play a vital role in job creation and the overall growth of our nation’s economy.  According to the Small Business Administration’s Office of Advocacy, small businesses account for 99.7% of U.S. firms, employ over 47.8% of the country’s working population, and employ nearly 1 million Arizonans.  These businesses are the backbone of our economy, which is why we provide financing options to ensure their dreams of entrepreneurship come to fruition.

We understand each business is unique with different goals. We offer flexible loan terms up to five years with loan amounts as low as $500.
