I can tell that the Vermont Community Loan Fund wants me and my business to succeed. It is my ultimate goal for this business to become sustainable and to keep it local.

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.
