MDC's active portfolio of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funded loan customers and our Venture Debt borrowers employed a total of 708 people as of the end of 2013. In 2013, these borrowers hired a total of 199 new employees.

Ninety-three of these new hires were in full-time jobs. Of these new hires in 2013, 88% were paid above two times the minimum wage, which we define as a high "quality" job. This is the highest percentage ever reporting quality job levels! Of the jobs created in 2013, over 50% were filled by low-and moderate-income people prior to their hire.
