Baltimore Business Lending


Baltimore Business Lending is an innovative new loan program designed around the primary barriers to credit for small businesses in Baltimore City, especially minority and women-owned businesses. With flexible loan terms, technical assistance requirements and support, and an ecosystem of small business lenders and bankers, BBL provides a new opportunity – a new pathway to capital – designed to provide support for small business development and growth in underserved neighborhoods.

Baltimore Business Lending, LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Baltimore Community Lending, Inc., (a certified nonprofit Community Development Financial Institution), makes small business loans to startup and emerging small businesses that are otherwise creditworthy, but lack the equity or collateral necessary for traditional lending resources. 

Baltimore Business Lending’s mission is to ensure access to capital for small business creation in Baltimore City, which will, in turn, provide employment opportunities to strengthen the economy of the city and increase the availability of goods and services to Baltimore City neighborhoods.
