December 8, 2021 Learn About LenderFit

As part of the CAMEO Incubator, CAMEO invites you to join us for a webinar to learn about LenderFit, a cloud-based loan origination software for microlenders and CDFIs on Wednesday, December 8, 2021 from 2:30-3:30pm PST. You’ll also hear how CAMEO members are utilizing LenderFit to increase their lending.

More capital is available for CDFIs than ever before; so the ability to deploy funds quickly without requiring staff to work overtime is critical. You’ve likely experienced some amount of staff burnout over the past 18 months with the acceleration of demand and application volume. Pre-existing application processes that required excessive email and/or phone based guidance were pressure-tested, and many were stretched beyond their limits.

Lenderfit enables teams to create their own, cloud-based, customer journeys that result in a tenfold increase in application management capacity. A well thought out digital journey results in greater transparency. Clients are empowered with TA-like guidance that results in the right information at the right time. Applicants self-organize the data you need both for approvals, and long-term reporting.

Additional capacity also results in more revenue generating opportunities as many CDFIs have been contacted by cities and counties to facilitate recovery programs that are focused on reaching BIPOC businesses with additional capital and services. Many of Lenderfit’s clients leverage DownHome Solutions, Google Suite, and/or Salesforce alongside Lenderfit.

December 16, 2021 Selling Your Loans Webinar

Join CAMEO and learn how your CDFI can expand your microlending mission and impact faster through loan sales with the Entrepreneur Backed Assets (EBA) Fund and guarantees through the Cal Southern Small Business Development Corporation. The EBA Fund helps CDFIs reliably raise capital from their portfolio and generate a higher return than holding the loans. Loan guarantees allow CDFIs to better manage risk and increase lending. Explore how guarantees and EBA Fund work together.
