VCLF Executive Director
The Vermont Community Loan Fund creates opportunities that lead to healthy communities and financial stability for all Vermonters.
VCLF is a mission-driven, community-focused alternative lender. We make loans to local businesses, community organizations & nonprofits, child care providers and developers of affordable housing who don’t qualify for a loan from a traditional lender. We combine our loans with financial consulting and business development services to make sure our borrowers have access to everything they need to succeed.
