Building upon its commitment to provide extensive trainings and reference materials for Community Development Financial Institutions, the Community Development Financial Institutions Fund added a new Capacity Building Initiative Resource Bank to its website today. The new “Innovations in Small Business Lending” Resource Bank will help business-oriented CDFI lenders establish and enhance services that are vital to the needs of small and medium enterprises.
The “Innovations in Small Business Lending” Resource Bank provides links to expert sources and reference materials that cover a wide range of topics, including innovative market opportunities for small business lenders, small business lending tools, and relevant data and research. The Resource Bank was compiled through the Capacity Building Initiative’s “Innovations in Small Business Lending” training series, administered by Deloitte Financial Advisory Services LLP.
The Resource Bank will be updated as more materials become available. To view the Resource Bank, and to learn more about the “Innovations in Small Business Lending” training series, as well as the other series available under the Capacity Building Initiative, please visit www.cdfifund.gov/cbi.
