Community Capital of Vermont is a statewide small business and microenterprise lender serving low and moderate income entrepreneurs. Our loans range in size from $1,000 to $100,000 and can be used for business start-up or growth and expansion. CCVT specializes in providing loans to business owners who lack the collateral or credit history to qualify for traditional bank loans.

Since 1995, Community Capital helps Vermonters create and retain jobs, build wealth, and enhance our downtowns and working landscape. In addition to managing its own loan funds, Community Capital administers the Vermont Job Start initiative to invest in lower income entrepreneurs and create jobs. Community Capital is the “go-to” lender statewide for entrepreneurs who require business start-up and expansion financing but are unable to secure bank financing. We serve as a stepping stone for entrepreneurs, helping them build the sales, experience, and credit to become sustainable, successful, and bankable businesses in the future.
