Resources for CDFI Growth — CDFI Loan Fund Business Model: The Four Essential Pillars

The Resources for CDFI Growth webinar series highlights new toolkits developed by OFN to support CDFI practitioners in maximizing organizational sustainability and impact as their organizations grow.  

Watch this webinar to learn more about the CDFI Loan Fund Business Model: The Four Essential Pillars Framework — a concise, practical handbook that covers the core elements of every CDFI’s business model: strategy, lending policies and procedures, organizational infrastructure, and financial strategy. The Framework provides CDFI managers and staff with a comprehensive approach for thinking about the development of CDFIs at all stages of growth. During this webinar, you’ll hear from OFN leadership, one of the lead authors of the guide, and a seasoned practitioner who is forming an emerging CDFI on what’s in the guide and how best to use it.

While designed specifically for CDFI loan funds, this user-friendly handbook can also be adapted for CDFI banks, credit unions, and venture funds.
