The U.S. Small Business Administration’s 2022 fiscal year ended on Sept. 30, and with it came some encouraging news. Local microloans jumped 57% from 2021, and here at Neighborhood Community Development Fund, our microloan volume rose from 13 to 36. In addition, 504 loans have increased by a third, from 46 in 2021 to 61 in 2022.
