You sound like you're describing the raison d'être for some credit unions: To lend to community members in support of projects that help build the community. It might be valuable to talk to managers of local credit unions about your projects and determine whether you can find anyone who can think outside the traditional "single family home" box.I'm not suggesting it is easy but maybe cohousers need to think about a Cohousing Bank of the US. Maybe we need to sharpen our cohousing models so that such a bank and its borrowers have a clear understanding or what a cohousing community is and why it is a goodinvestment.
