The National African American Small Business Loan Fund will boost economic opportunity for minority-owned businesses in these cities and help them serve low-income communities by providing them with greater access to capital, technical assistance, and financial consulting.
Facilitated by VEDC, a Los Angeles-based Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI), this new fund will provide financing for businesses across all industries.
