    Building Pathways to Prosperity for Small, Minority & Women Owned Businesses

Small business plays a vital role in our community.

Businesses cannot grow, however— in revenue, size, or impact—without access to capital. But historically, entrepreneurs—especially women, people of color and low- and moderate-income businesses —face barriers to traditional lending due to racial and gender inequalities, and oftentimes a lack of generational wealth as well.

PATHWAY meets this need through innovative loan products as well as financial counseling and training.
