At City First we are committed to helping our communities grow and prosper. We do this by providing the capital that local businesses need to thrive and by financing the acquisition and renovation of retail and commercial properties, that in turn result in the creation and retention of jobs. In 2014, City First financing helped small businesses stay in business, creating or maintaining 487 jobs. Since our founding 17 years ago, our loans and financing have helped create or retain almost 4,368 jobs. We measure our success by the impact we have in the community.
