High-impact investment, at home

Abigail Easterly and Scott Silberfeld invest in the Community Loan Fund

Opportunity NH Investment logoInvesting at the New Hampshire Community Loan Fund is simple. It’s secure. It’s local. It has a huge impact in our communities. And it feels great.

That’s because when you make an Opportunity NH Investment, you’re helping hard-working New Hampshire people achieve their goals and become more financially secure.

Your investment will:

  • create and preserve decent and affordable housing for families with low incomes
  • help our state’s smallest businesses survive and thrive
  • create and preserve good jobs
  • build a supply of quality, affordable child care and early education.

Associated risks include:

  • Investments in the Community Loan Fund are unsecured.
  • Investments in the Community Loan Fund are not insured by the FDIC, nor by any governmental or private entity.
  • While the Community Loan Fund has not lost any lender's funds, past performance is no guarantee of future performance.
  • Investments in the Community Loan Fund cannot be redeemed before their due date and there is no known market to sell or trade them before maturity.

Interest paid is reported to the IRS and will be taxed by state and federal governments.

People and institutions invest in the Community Loan Fund for a fixed set of years and at a fixed rate of return (depending on the length of the loan, up to 5%; some investors choose a lower rate). This is established at the time you make your loan and doesn’t change until your loan matures.


Every year, on the anniversary of your loan, you will receive interest in the form of a check, as a direct deposit into your bank account, or accrued into your loan here. A couple of months before the loan matures, we’ll ask whether you want to renew it, and at what terms, or whether you’d like it repaid.


But the best reason to make an Opportunity NH Investment is the impact you will have—right here in New Hampshire. Even as you earn a modest return, you will be helping to provide opportunity and transform lives.

And that’s a pretty rewarding feeling.
