The Aspen Institute Webinar: Delivering Credit to Entrepreneurs of Color Impacted by COVID-19: Why Community Development Financial Institutions Are Essential
August 4 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
The Aspen Institute is hosting a webinar on Delivering Credit to Entrepreneurs of Color Impacted by COVID-19: Why Community Development Financial Institutions Are Essential on Tuesday, August 4th, at 2:00 PM.
Prior to the global pandemic, the relatively high small business start and ownership rates among entrepreneurs of color were a bright spot in a period of declining US entrepreneurship. But small businesses have endured some of the hardest stresses of the pandemic, as forced closures and physical distancing have decimated earnings for restaurants, salons, childcare centers, and other services we all rely on. Fortunately, there are lenders who serve these businesses and communities: Community Development Financial Institutions. CDFIs are mission-driven lenders that serve the parts of America that too often get left behind, including people of color, returning veterans, new citizens, and more.
