The Community Development Finance Association (cdfa) is the UK trade association for Community Development Finance Institutions (CDFIs). Its mission is to support the development of a thriving and sustainable sector, delivered through CDFIs by providing finance to businesses, social enterprises and individuals who are unable to raise loan finance from banks. Community development finance delivers financial products primarily aimed at businesses in disadvantaged areas, but also addresses increasing personal debt in poorer communities.
This year marks an exciting and challenging time of growth for the cdfa with some significant achievements, including securing a £60m financial investment through the government's Regional Growth Fund to pass on to its members. Last year we had an organisational income of £2.4million.
