Valley Community Loan Fund
Financing and Services for Jobs
Valley Community Loan Fund Inc. ( a non-profit organization in formation) plans to increase business activity, employment, incomes and the well being of individuals and families by providing additional business financing, access to and subsidies for education and training, management information and mentoring to unemployed, low and moderate income and otherwise underserved members of our communities, small businesses and nonprofit community organizations in southwest New Hampshire and south eastern Vermont, with an initial focus on the “Upper Valley” area.
Community loan funds are akin to community banks in that they make loans, primarily commercial loans, in their target geographic regions. They are generally nonprofit organizations organized under section 501c3 of the internal Revenue Code. The Fund has applied for nonprofit status with the Internal Revenue Service.
