Second Chance Small Business Loans
Guest: Mark Pinsky
If you need a small business loan and are having trouble getting traditional financing you'll want to learn about Community Development Financial Institutions and how they can help. You'll find out what CDFI's are, what kinds of loans they make and for what amounts. You'll find out how some make loans to the unbanked or underbanked, and the flexible financing they offer. You'll also learn how they offer more than just a loan.
Even if you've been turned down for a loan from a traditional financial institution, you may be able to get a loan from a CDDI. This interview with the Opportunity Finance Network's President and CEO Mark Pinsky aired live on July 29, 2013.
