Lifters

“After 30 years in banking of not being able to help small business owners/entrepreneurs, it was clear to me that I wanted to be somewhere that I could champion those requests and make a difference. At LiftFund, I was given the opportunity to create a loan product up to $250,000 using a new SBA 7a guaranty program, which for 2018 represented about a third of our lending volume. What an exciting ride it has been!”

Adrian Gonzalez, EVP of Large Loans

“During my 19-year tenure at LiftFund, I have been encouraged to think outside the box and innovate. It is very rewarding to know that we have demystified credit worthiness. We are helping entrepreneurs that otherwise would have been left behind. We don’t just make loans, we finance people’s dreams.”

Nelly Rojas-Moreno, Chief Credit Officer

“I get to build community for entrepreneurs that feel alone in their work, that are tirelessly working to create a better life and need the resources and education to succeed. The work that we do at LiftFund is more than a loan, it's opportunity building at the highest and lowest levels - it’s for people who take the risks and strive to do better for themselves, their family, their community and employees.”

Ryan Salts, Director of Launch SA

“Our value, ‘Strive to Be Better’ resonates throughout the growth of LiftFund as a program and as an employer that supports the personal and professional development of its employees. At LiftFund, there is continual exchange of ideas to progress and improve daily operations to continue our mission.”

Uwe Rademacher, IT Programmer

“Integrity, Commitment and Loyalty to the mission of helping entrepreneurs dreams become a reality are the values that best align with my work at LiftFund. I am inspired by my clients and knowing I have some part in their success.”
