For Our Partners


Opening Doors is an alternative lending institution. Our small business program is a community effort; we rely on our partners for referrals, for spreading the word about the availability of business microloans, and for building the skills and capacity of our borrowers. 


Loan Officer Partners
If you are a loan officer, we are eager to serve those qualified borrowers that fall slightly outside of your lending criteria.  Our goal is to eventually send them back to you with the business size, skills, and capacity to become your borrowers.


Loan Details
We provide small business loans in amounts up to $50,000 with interest rates of 7.75% to 8.5% and for terms of three to five years. (Those with the refugee or asylee immigration status may qualify for a lower interest starter loan for refugees)  We work with existing businesses and start-ups in the Greater Sacramento area.



Referrals can be made by email or by completing the Online Referral Form.


Feedback Referral System

We value referrals from our partners and, if you wish, we’ll keep you apprised of actions taken on referrals.
