Startup Opportunity with Experienced Tribe Lender

Opportunity: Synopsis of a proposed capital raise for a De Novo Tribe portfolio by an experienced payday loan/installment lender.

Proposal for Trihouse to Connect Operators and Capital Providers 2017


Experienced Lender with capital is re-entering the small dollar subprime lending space and seeks additional capital to partner with in order to grow and scale the portfolio.

Lender is launching a new Tribal Lending Portfolio having a minimum starting capital of $4-$6M. Lender will contribute 10-20% of the capital into this deal depending on the final deal structure.

Should a capital provider prefer to employ a “state-by-state” licensing model, this Lender is “open” to this strategy. However, the capital required is at least 2x to be viable.

Additionally, this experienced Lender is open to managing a portfolio for a sovereign Native American Indian Tribe.


  • Lender has seven+ years of experience in underwriting, origination, and servicing loans focused on the underbanked, sub-prime consumer segments.
  • Lender manages the complete personal loan lending cycle from acquisition through payoff or collections.
  • Lender will manage all the day to day operations of this new portfolio.

Lender previously launched a $1M+ small dollar/sub-prime/installment portfolio and successfully exited by selling the portfolio to a larger group.

  • Lender has launched and serviced multiple online lending products (Merchant Cash Advance, Pre-Settlement Funding)
  • Lender worked on a team in the Prime Consumer Online Lending Space (Lending Club)
  • Previous Lender entrepreneurial ventures:
    • Started an online marketing company that specialized in online lead generation with in-house call center.
    • Lender’s first entrepreneurial venture was starting, and successfully merging, an accounting outsourcing company into a larger competitor
    • Lender started his career on Wall Street (Bear Stearns & others) as an institutional sales/trader.

Infrastructure in Place:

  • Lender to manage the entire operation
  • Director of Operations (who worked with Lender on previous portfolios
  • All Operations to be done in house (no outsourcing of call center)
  • Data analyst
  • LOI in place with a specific Tribe having a 5 year Term and a Pre-Negotiated 5 Year Renewal Option.

What Lender requires of a Partner:

  • Financial Partner who brings capital to the table. The capital will remain in the business for a 3-4 year period.
  • It is imperative the capital partner understands the lending business
  • Preferred method of capital monetization is a straight debt deal
  • Lender is open to a debt/Equity Hybrid
