About Us

Southern Mutual Financial Services, Inc., (SMFS) is a Louisiana 501(c)3 corporation dedicated to removing barriers to affordable capital for low-wealth families and communities.

Certified as a Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) in November 2000, SMFS was created by Southern Mutual Help Association, Inc., (SMHA) to fill the need for affordable loan dollars for low-wealth families and communities in rural South Louisiana. Local bank partners encouraged the creation of SMFS and eight area banks have helped capitalize the CDFI.
