IMPACTO Microloans


A microloan enables a small business owner to pursue their dream, support their family, and create jobs in their community. These entrepreneurs form the backbone of our economy.

Many minority entrepreneurs are unable to access working capital from traditional financial institutions because they are too young or too small. IMPACTO Fund works to expand access to financial mobility.

Our borrowers enter the financial mainstream with microloans that build a positive credit history and provide the working capital needed to expand operations and hire or retain employees

Microloans help low-income entrepreneurs build their financial history today,  preparing them for traditional borrowing in the future.
