Small Business Lending

CPLC has been lending to small business since 1980. High demand for this service led CPLC to formalize their lending activities in 2000 and create a wholly owned subsidiary “Prestamos CDFI, LLC”. Prestamo’s mission is to build stronger communities by providing access to affordable capital through non-traditional small business financing resources in Arizona, Nevada, and New Mexico.

Prestamos is committed to addressing the lack of access to affordable capital and provides economic opportunities for small and emerging small businesses to start and grow. Since its inception, Prestamos has provided more than $50 million in loans supporting more than 400 businesses.

Prestamos loan products are designed to address common barriers to capital such as:
  • Lack of collateral
  • Credit blemishes
  • Insufficient equity and or cash flow

In addition, Prestamos provides technical support to its clients.

Prestamos Loan Products:
  • Micro-Loans ($5,000 - $50,000)
  • Small Business Loans ($50,000 - $500,000)
  • SBA-Community Advantage Loans ($100,000-250,000)
