Empowering Diverse Entrepreneurs

We specialize in working with minority, women, veteran, rural and low-income small business borrowers. Often, our clients are first-time borrowers who don’t have a lending relationship, have been declined for a loan or seek more capital than they might be able to secure at another institution. 

Our clients choose Pathway because we partner with them to help their businesses succeed. Your opportunity is our mission.
