People Incorporated has provided small business development and lending services for disadvantaged businesses since 1992, and has a proven history of impacting the low income communities and individuals it serves.

PIFS now serves as the vehicle for the community development lending activities facilitated by People Incorporated, which provides all staffing, administration, financial management, compliance, asset management, resource development, and business development services for PIFS.

PIFS is a U.S. Treasury certified Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI), an intermediary micro-lender and PRIME grantee for the Small Business Administration, and a Regional Service Provider for the Virginia Enterprise Initiative of the Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development. The organization provides financial products that include microenterprise loans, business loans, consumer, credit-building and home improvement loans, and New Markets Tax Credits; all of these financial products are accompanied by a comprehensive and progressive menu of development services that reinforce the sustainability of a business as well as strengthen a client’s ability to repay a loan.

As a designated Regional Service Provider for the Virginia Enterprise Initiative, People Incorporated Financial Services has expanded the provision of development services throughout a larger region of Virginia by sharing their expertise and instructing other Microenterprise Development Organizations to provide current and effective technical assistance, business training, and mentoring to small business assistance providers in their respective service areas. And as a U.S. Small Business Administration’s PRIME grantee, People Incorporated Financial Services provided small capacity-building grants to two small business assistance providers in Virginia. More frequently, PIFS is becoming recognized nationally as a leader in advocating for microenterprise entrepreneurship and providing the products and tools necessary to create viable businesses in predominantly rural communities, thus positioning People Incorporated as an ideal candidate to carryout out the activities requested by VMN.
