Craft3 is a regional nonprofit CDFI that makes loans to strengthen economic, ecological and family resilience in Oregon and Washington. We lend to established nonprofits and growing and startup businesses – including those that don’t qualify for traditional loans.
The purpose of the loan programs is to alleviate poverty and increase economic activity and employment in rural communities, especially disadvantaged and remote communities. The programs are targeted primarily towards smaller and emerging businesses, in partnership with other public and private resources, and in accordance with state and regional strategy based on identified community needs.
