Small Business Loans

PCV’s Loan Fund (SAIL) provides affordable small business loans ($50,000 - $200,000) to California businesses that are creating quality jobs in underserved communities.

We make the loan process simple and straightforward.  We’ll provide:

  • personal relationship with your business
  • quick response on loan eligibility, and
  • direct and frequent communication during the lending process. 

Our loans help small business owners located in or hiring from low- or moderate-income communities thrive and be successful. In addition to quarterly meetings with a financial advisor, SAIL borrowers can also work with expert small business advisors in a variety of areas, such as marketing, HR and operations. All of the areas that you may currently be facing challenges in as you grow your business.  With a PCV SAIL loan, although you're the CEO of your business, you’re not alone; we’re here to help.
