Each member has his or her own unique story and financial goals. Our investors and partners are equally focused on having an impact in our target market.
To create wealth and promote economic development by bringing affordable capital and financial services to low-income and other traditionally underserved populations.
Our motto “We don’t say ‘no’, we say when” reinforces our mission:
