Citizen Potawatomi Community Development Corporation


The CPCDC is one of the most active Native CDFIs in the United States offering four lending programs: Micro Business Loan Program (loans up to $25,000), Commercial Lending Program (loans up to $300,000), CPN Employee Loan Program (loans from $500 - $1,500) The purpose of this consumer loan program is to provide an alternative to short term, high-cost financing (such as Pay Day lenders), and the Credit Builder Loan Program (Loans from $200 - $1,500) is intended to provide a active credit line to those who need to establish or reestablish credit.

The Citizen Potawatomi Asset Builders Individual Development Account (IDA) Program has an adult and youth component. IDAs represent a powerful tool for Native Americans and are used by community organizations throughout the United States to stimulate participants' savings rates, build their assets, and connect these individuals to the economic mainstream. The CPCDC also offers Business Development Program, providing an array of workshops and one-on-one technical training. Technical assistance and training supports the CDFI's primary lending activities by strengthening the skills and knowledge of existing and potential borrowers and supporting IDA savers that have identified entrepreneurship as a goal. The CPCDC knows consistent support safeguards the viability of projects, contributes significantly to the success of the business and keeps loan losses low. Development services play a special role in helping low and moderate-income Native American borrowers improve their financial and business management skills and understand credit instruments. Through the Financial Education and Credit Counseling Programs, CPCDC offers both workshops and one-on-one budgeting and credit counseling.
