CBE Microloans

If you run a certified business enterprise (CBE) that wants to expand, microloans have proved to be advantageous for businesses wanting to grow but don’t have the capital. A microloan enables small business owners an opportunity to succeed by providing start-up capital that help businesses in their early stages of development.

DSLBD has teamed with the Washington Area Community Investment Fund (WACIF) to help small businesses secure funding. The fund program is dedicated for CBE’s and has a maximum loan amount of $25,000.

The CBE Microloan program is administered through the Washington Area Community Investment Fund (WACIF).  To get started, please select the link to download an application.  Additional questions regarding the CBE Microloan Fund may be directed to WACIF by email at info@wacif.org or by calling (202) 529-5505.
