Ultimately, these small-business owners create jobs within San Francisco’s lower-income communities. Our loans can be used for any legitimate business purpose: startups, supplies and inventory, equipment, lease improvements, vehicles, purchasing a business, business debt consolidation and working capital.

    • We offer fixed-rate term loans that range from $5,000 to $100,000. Our loan products are offered in combination with our business coaching. It is one combined product. We offer our coaching and the loans in English and Spanish.
    • We charge 7–9% interest, which is far lower than credit card rates or other non-bank lenders, and is also competitive with many banks.
    • We offer 3-year and 5-year terms, and there is no prepayment penalty.
    • All loans are reported to the credit bureaus. So, you will be able to build credit with our loans.
    • There is no cost to apply.
    • ITIN holders are encouraged to apply.
    • Our most important approval criterion is establishing that you have the capacity to repay the loan.
    • We do not have a minimum credit score, although your credit history will be considered.

    Adelante Fund provides access to capital to small-business owners who cannot get a loan at a traditional bank in the San Francisco Bay Area. Our service area includes the nine Bay Area counties: Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Solano and Sonoma.
