$15 Million from Wells Fargo Will Ramp up LISC-Kiva Support for Vulnerable Small Businesses

Wells Fargo is granting $15 million to LISC to support small businesses reeling in the wake of the economic fallout from Covid. LISC will use the funds in a partnership with Kiva, the crowd-funding social impact platform, to get grants and low-cost loans to more than 2,800 entrepreneurs in urban and rural markets nationwide. The capital will be targeted at preventing further loss in revenue, sustaining employment and averting vacancies among vulnerable small business owners.

Financial Opportunity Centers: Flexibility in the Face of a Pandemic

The people who run LISC’s Financial Opportunity Centers across the country are a class of essential workers who have had to think creatively and act quickly to help clients who are among those hardest hit by the brutal economic fallout of Covid-19. This is how they’ve adapted to make sure their services are reaching those who need them.
