DownHome Loan Manager (DLM)

DLM is loan-tracking software created expressly for community lenders. We know how important it is to focus your energies on your borrowers, so we designed DLM to simplify the business side of your client relationships. 

DownHome Loan Manager is powerful, flexible, and easy to use. The core system covers all the essentials, and add-on modules are available for specialized needs.

DLM makes posting loan payments a snap, automatically calculating interest, principal and fees. It keeps track of all payments and charges and includes this information on monthly bills to borrowers. The core system easily accommodates changes in loan terms, as well as non-standard payments, work-outs, etc. DLM’s standard reports allow you to view your entire portfolio or filter by specific loan program, whether you report to the SBA, CDFI, USDA, or other funders.
