I look at it this way: The more we can help each other out as neighbors, the better off we'll all be. The Loan Fund helps others like you would expect a neighbor to help you.

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.
The Vermont Community Loan Fund is proud to announce a new partnership with Cabot Creamery and eight local co-operative food stores to benefit Vermont farmers and food producers.
A portion of the proceeds from sales of Cabot products at these stores will go to the Food, Farms & Forests Fund, a loan fund dedicated to meeting the capital needs of small farms, food producers, and working lands entrepreneurs. Items bearing the VCLF sticker are available now at participating food co-ops.Read more ...
