Community Development Finance Institutions (CDFIs)
money to people who
can't borrow from other places,
banks and building societies, to
help their community.

CDFIs are non-profit organisations that lend money to individuals, businesses, social enterprises and charities who can use the money to help and develop their local community.
CDFIs lend money to people who find it difficult to borrow money from banks and building societies, with lower interest rates than doorstep lenders or loan sharks.
Different CDFIs lend in different areas, and for different purposes. Use our CDFI finder to find the right one for you
