About Community Micro Lending
Community Micro Lending is a non-profit society serving Greater Victoria, BC. Since 2009, we have worked to connect local entrepreneurs with the resources, training and support they need to start or expand community-scale enterprises.
We do this through two main approaches: facilitating peer-to-peer microloans between community members and providing inclusive, accessible financial literacy and entrepreneurship training programs.
As a non-profit organization, our clients often face intersectional barriers to accessing traditional avenues of support. These barriers include but are not limited to race, immigration status, gender, trauma, low-incomes, disability, challenges with mental health and substance use, age, childcare commitments, education and work experience. Staff and volunteers work hard to meet clients where they’re at and to connect them with wrap-around support to increase access to programs and services. Staff, facilitators and volunteers are expected to approach these efforts with the intention of growing client confidence and connecting them with the skills, knowledge and resources they need to bring ideas to life. Through this work, we aim to build thriving, resilient communities one entrepreneur at a time.
