“We are glad to be able to offer this government guaranteed forgivable loan that can provide critical capital to small business owners coping with this unprecedented period of economic upheaval,” said Bernardo Martinez, Managing Director of Funding Circle US. “This crisis is about saving Main Street small businesses, and the Paycheck Protection Program is vital to ensure these businesses retain their employees.”

Funding Circle will also provide support to applicants in four languages — English, Spanish, Mandarin, Hindi.

The Paycheck Protection Program is a $350 billion program authorized by the CARES Act, and includes provisions for loan forgiveness up to 100%, if the proceeds of the loan are used for certain payroll costs, interest on mortgages, rent, and utilities.

As a founding member of the Responsible Business Lending Coalition and signatory to the Small Business Borrower Bill of Rights, Funding Circle is committed to providing transparent financing and access to responsible, transparent credit for small businesses that have historically been under-served by traditional lenders.
