Your investment with BIN will not only earn you a return, your funds will have a direct impact on your community providing the capital to make a difference in your neighborhood.
Demand for services is constantly increasing, especially with the recent recession rendering many previously bankable companies under-banked. This is where you come in. By leveraging additional funds, and/ or creating new financial products, investing in a community lender like Business Impact NW ensures both financial and social returns.
BIN’s mission to offer affordable financial products and business assistance to constituents relies on low-cost, patient capital structures to account for the greater-than-market financing risk.
BIN works in tandem with its community supporters to continue to deliver and expand social returns in our region.
