Top Reads, Week of 5/13

LISC Teams Up with Wells Fargo to Spur Small Businesses in Puerto Rico

LISC is working with Wells Fargo on an effort to spur economic recovery across Puerto Rico. A new grant is supporting LISC’s Kiva Puerto Rico Match Fund to help entrepreneurs launch and grow small businesses, while also helping LISC expand its capacity to support disaster recovery nationwide. It builds on LISC's long experience in communities hit hard by major hurricanes, tornados, floods and fires.

“Small Business Is Personal for Us”: Q&A with Julie Huston, CEO of immito

Last year, LISC launched its newest subsidiary, the SBA-guaranteed lender immito, to scale our ability to reach and support underserved small businesses and help spur job growth across the country. Julie Huston, immito’s founding president, is a seasoned small business expert—in fact, she recently testified before Congress re: new budget proposals that would hamper small business entrepreneurs’ access to credit. We caught up with Huston at her base in Denver to learn more about immito, the economic and social power of small business, and why all this is so close to Huston’s heart.
