For financial agencies and lenders looking to increase small business loans, specifically to those in Native American communities, then an upcoming webinar sponsored by the U.S. Small Business Administration is must-viewing.
On Jan. 23 beginning at noon CST, the SBA will host the program to provide information on “providing financing and technical assistance ideal for traditionally underserved communities. The webinar will focus on using SBA’s Microloan and Community Advantage Pilot Loan programs and how community lenders with a Native American Community focus can use these programs to achieve their missions.”
Participating in the webinar will be representatives from the SBA Office of Economic Opportunity and the SBA Office of Native American Affairs. Only lenders may sign on for the program.
