Slow Money NC

Slow Money NC

Many of us have investments which travel the globe at the speed of light and have no relationship to us, or to the products we use, or to our local communities. We think we need to change that. With Slow Money NC our money comes back home where it can do a great deal of good, and back down to earth. Slow Money NC lets you reconnect with a portion of the money that you entrusted to strangers in faraway places and, instead, help build a more local, durable economy from the soil up!  When you make a loan to a farmer or other local food enterprises so they can expand and flourish, you can truly enjoy the fruits of their labor.

The Center for Community Self-Help is a community development lender and real estate developer. It was founded in Durham, North Carolina in 1980. The nonprofit Center for Community Self-Help (or Self-Help) combines several organizations that together provide financing, technical support, consumer financial services and advocacy for those left out of the economic mainstream. Since Self-Help’s founding, we have reached out particularly to female, low-income, low-wealth, rural and minority communities across North Carolina, Washington D.C., California and many other states. We provide responsible financial services through our network of state- and federally chartered credit unions. We help borrowers nationwide build wealth by providing fair and responsible loans to homebuyers, businesses and consumers. We strengthen under-served communities by financing nonprofits, child care centers, community health facilities, public charter schools, affordable housing and more. We develop residential and commercial real estate to support community and economic development. Over time we have demonstrated that low-income borrowers pose no greater credit risk than other borrowers. Our borrowers have proven their determination to repay their loans, build their businesses, improve their communities, and build wealth through home ownership and home equity.
