Review for Opportunity Fund, San Jose, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Opportunity Fund (then known as Lenders for Community Development) not only mentored me through the loan qualification process to purchase my small business, but also helped me secure a line of credit with a traditional bank. As I succeeded and stumbled in my first few years, they provide legal resources, education, and helped me start a savings program for my future.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the community that forms amongst the clients.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

clever, energetic, and caring.

Ways to make it better...

I had taken advantage of all the resources available to me when my business was struggling.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the disbelief/ lack of knowledge amongst small businesses or solo-entrepreneurs that this kind of help is available to them.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?


Role:  Client Served & Received a small business loan and a matched funds savings program.
