CDFA Equitable Lending Learning Series

Created in Partnership with Lendistry

CDFA Announces 2023 CDFA Equitable Lending Learning Series

Lendistry was founded in 2015 to open doors and give small business owners a fair chance at getting the funds they need without resorting to predatory lenders.

What does access to capital look like?
At Lendistry, it’s:

\ Choices

Responsible terms in low, medium and high amounts, because your capital needs don’t end after the first loan

\ Fintech

An online application that’s easy to complete anytime, anywhere, because coming to a branch isn’t an option for every business owner

\ Equitability

A different approach to making lending decisions, because every business is different, and they all deserve a fair chance to grow

Access to capital means access to options.
Access to opportunity.

Access to professionals who are driven to help
underserved business owners and communities succeed.

This belief has led Lendistry to become the largest
minority-led deployer of capital in the nation.

“Lendistry was able to step in and alleviate some of that pressure. I was really relieved when I got the email from Lendistry that I was getting funded because it did allow my business to continue moving forward.”

— Rebecca Stadler, Stadler Law
