Host Jeremy C. Park talks with Thomas Sheffield, Director of the Nashville Opportunity Fund with Pathway Lending, who highlights the nonprofit lender, known as a community development financial institution (CDFI), and some of the ways Pathway Lending approaches lending differently, so it can reach all corners of the community.
During the interview, Thomas discusses the Nashville Small Business Recovery Fund that Pathway Lending is administering. Aimed at helping small businesses refuel following the last few years, the Fund was established by Mayor John Cooper’s office and Metro Council with federal dollars from the American Rescue Plan Act. Thomas talks about the loan program, what makes it different, who is eligible to apply, what you need to know to apply, and more.
