# Loaders: Data Destinations

Meltano lets you easily load extracted data into arbitrary data destinations (databases, SaaS APIs, and file formats) using Singer targets, which take the role of your project's loader plugins.

To learn more about extracting and loading data using Meltano, refer to the Data Integration (EL) guide.

Loaders for the following destinations are currently known to Meltano and supported out of the box:

Don't see your data destination listed here?

If a Singer target for your destination already exists, it can easily be added to your project as a custom loader. If not, you can learn how to create your own from scratch.

Once you've successfully added a previously unknown loader to your Meltano project, don't forget to make it known to Meltano to make it easier for other people to install in the future!
