A community loan comes with money and customer engagement, like this Squareholder party for a small cafe
Our community loans are successful when the capital is Useful, Responsible and Connected.
Accessing zero-interest loans from your community works best if you're looking for $5,000 - $50,000 to fund a project for your existing business and you have a connection to people in your community.
Here's the top criteria for a community loan
Useful. You can use $5,000-$50,000 to improve or start your business
Responsible. You can repay a loan in three years and you are happy to be transparent about what's going on in your business with your generous community lenders
Connected. You are trusted in your community of family, friends, customers, and community members and you have established methods of communicating with them.
CSC charges flat fees for our services
The CSC platform charges a one-time $250 fee to launch a campaign. During the repayment of your loan, a flat monthly membership fee of $50 is charged each month until the principal amount of the loan is repaid.
A community loan represents more than just money
Community loans are an amazing way to increase engagement with your current or future customers. A one month campaign on the CSC platform helps you recruit these lenders. We provide a play-by-play toolkit to make the campaign feel simple and easy.
