opportunity for ALL

we believe

  1. One of the barriers that keeps people with low incomes from achieving greater self-sufficiency is a lack of access to credit.
  2. People and organizations that have or manage financial resources are willing to help their neighbors when they have a trusted mechanism to do so.

our mission

Serve as a catalyst, leveraging financial, human, and civic resources to enable traditionally underserved people to participate more fully in New Hampshire’s economy. We do this by:

  • Providing loans, capital and technical assistance;
  • Complementing and extending the reach of conventional lenders and public institutions; and
  • Bringing people and institutions together to solve problems.

FAQs

The money we lend is either invested in us or donated to us for that purpose. Donations and grants pay for the education and technical assistance that help our borrowers succeed. And the money we earn on loans pays for overhead, salaries, facilities, etc.

No. We're a 501(c)(3) nonprofit community development financial institution. We also receive very little government funding.
Our loan qualifications differ from program to program, but we lend primarily to people with low and moderate incomes, the businesses that employ them, and the nonprofits, child care centers, and housing developers that serve them. If you qualify for a loan from a bank or credit union, they are your best option.

We lend only to people, institutions, and projects in New Hampshire and, occasionally, in border communities.
We finance only manufactured homes (also called mobile homes) because they are a far-more-affordable option for people and families with low and moderate incomes.
People who own manufactured homes in investor-owned parks lack some important financial benefits of homeownership. Because they own the house but rent the land beneath it, their home’s value never grows. And because the park could be closed and the land used for a different purpose, they can’t get home equity loans for renovations or repairs.

They are also vulnerable to excessive rent increases, poor-quality maintenance, and infrastructure (like water, sewer and road) failures. They even risk losing their homes if the park closes. Each of these threats affects the security and well-being of these families and communities.
