“Paying back to Pay it Forward”

As a nonprofit organization, our goal is not about generating dollars, but about becoming a sustainable resource for our community driving positive change.  We manage a Revolving Loan Program (available across Southern Arizona) where payments from each active loan are used to fund future loans.  As borrowers make loan payments, they are investing in the success of future businesses and nonprofits just like them!
