I needed to know whether this could be a viable business. I didn't quite know where to begin...that's when I contacted VCLF. They came to visit me, gave me all the resources to get started, and helped me get past all the hurdles. And here we are!

Impact, Sustainability, Justice...OPPORTUNITY

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.
