An innovative partner for the CDFI and MDI sector

CornerSquare Community Capital is a partner and resource for the CDFI and MDI sector that is designed to significantly increase investment in communities through small-businesses and entrepreneurs that have seen decades of underinvestment. We believe in ensuring access to capital for those who need it most, and partner with CDFIs and MDIs in our footprint who share that belief. 

Benefits of Partnership

CornerSquare Community Capital is a unique, long-term, sustainable solution focused on supporting CDFIs and MDIs working with small businesses at the local level.

When we purchase a portion of loans, it helps to de-risk transactions

Which in turn increases individual CDFI and MDI lending capacity

And that expands reach and supports more small businesses

This is a unique long-term solution, as partner CDFIs and MDIs typically see their capacity increase by at least 25 percent in a few years as a direct result of our partnership.
