About one in four small businesses owned by an ethnic minority—African American, Asian, or Hispanic—plan to apply for a credit product in the next 12 months compared with 15 percent in the general population (Gallup: Small Business Diverse Segments Lending Study, sponsored by Wells Fargo, May 2015).
Are you ready for their business?
MicroEnterprise Collaborative of Inland Southern California is providing a “listening and brainstorming” session for business bankers, microlenders, and small-business service providers who work with ethnically diverse small business owners.
Increasing Lending to Minority-Owned Businesses
Thursday, April 21, 2016 10 AM – 12 PM
Offices of NPHS, Inc., 9551 Pittsburgh Avenue, Rancho Cucamonga, CA 91730
The agenda includes an overview of the latest information about lending to diverse business owners, sharing the challenges and successes experienced by business bankers, and brainstorming for solutions with microlenders and small business service providers.
(Note: The meeting is focused on the concerns of the community partners involved with microlending and wouldn’t be of interest to business owners.)
