Borrower Stories

At the end of the day, it’s not about the number of housing units constructed, nor commercial square footage developed. It’s about the men, women, and children whose lives are touched by the projects we finance.

It’s another shot at an education. An opportunity to buy healthy food close to home. A place to call home.

These are the stories that make our work worthwhile.

Take a look at some of the great borrower stories that are the driving force behind why we do what we do:
