Selected partners are eligible to receive a combination of capital and
philanthropic support:

  • A lending facility with a seven year term, with the first 2-3 years for deployment and the final 4-5 years for repayment. Rates will be set based on market conditions at the time of underwriting
  • A grant to cover Loan Loss Reserves (LLR).  Once the lending facility is repaid, the unused portion of the LLR grant may convert to unrestricted funds
  • The opportunity to participate in the small business lender training workshops that GS 10,000 Small Businesses will launch in 2014 together with OFN
  • CDFI Loan Funds and other mission based small business lenders may also apply for a grant to cover a portion of general operating expenses
