Harvest Small Business Finance, LLC (“Harvest”) is a non-bank lender with the specific goal of serving small business borrowers who have traditionally been ignored by large, regional, and community banks. The increased regulatory burden placed on banks has created a standardized approach to Commercial Real Estate (CRE) lending, leaving many small businesses behind. With a company mindset dedicated to solution oriented CRE lending, Harvest fills the void created by traditional bank & finance companies. We offer commercial real estate loans starting at $200,000 up to $5 million to customers in most industries.
Formed in 2015, Harvest is headquartered in Laguna Hills, California, specializing in SBA 7(a) loans up to $5 million to small businesses. An affiliate of Candlewood Investment Group, LP (“CIG”) provides transactional capital to Harvest. CIG is a New York based SEC registered investment manager with approximately $1.66 billion in net assets under management as of August 25, 2016 in predominantly credit-based strategies.
