At CCL, our vision is to enable everyone to thrive by creating and supporting decentralized solutions that pivot capital and power to communities.
We enable regenerative lending programs at the direction of partners that represent communities facing barriers in the financial system.
CCL partners with community-based organizations to develop affordable lending programs that get capital to people on their terms. Our lending programs are designed in partnership with the community to center the needs, opportunities, and experiences of people with identities that have been institutionally discriminated against by the financial system. We are a small, fast-growing team working toward a paradigm shift within the financial sector to move capital and power to communities, reduce the wealth gap, and build individual, collective and generational prosperity.
Where You Come In
Our team is quickly building a decentralized lending model with an enthusiastic and growing network of Lending Partners that lead the design and criteria of equitable, affordable Lending Programs for their communities. As we continue developing new Lending Programs, we are thrilled to open a position for a committed partner to build on this foundation of working closely and collaboratively with our partners. We are looking for someone who has fresh ideas and is passionate about finding innovative ways to support new and existing Lending Partners effectively. We are committed to building a partnership model that is aligned with our values and are looking to hire a professional to support our Lending Partners well.
The ideal candidate will emphasize trust and relationships, have a working knowledge of community lending models, be familiar with or highly motivated to learn investment structures, and be ready to own and develop approaches that balance the need to get things done while honoring the individuality of each borrower and community lending partner we work with. You will be an important partner in building alongside us as we work toward a more inclusive financial system and improve our service offering to our Lending Partners.
This could be a great role for someone searching for a flexible work schedule with a desire to support a start-up nonprofit at the intersection of community-oriented impact investment, fintech, and nonprofit management.
Our Commitment to You
At CCL, we seek to build a team where each individual is supported to lead, adapt, and direct their work in support of our partners and the communities that our partners represent. As a team, we commit to supporting our partners and one another with humor, empathy, a desire for mutual learning, and a shared recognition that, although this work is professional, it is also deeply personal. We aim to support our partners, our borrowers, and each other holistically as we all continue to grow and evolve together. With the knowledge that our approach to this is not always perfect, we are always open to feedback on how we can improve individually and collectively.
