Successful brand strategist Kristin Harper created Driven to Succeed in 2020 a marketing research firm that helps Fortune 500 companies and leading brands drive growth through market research and brand strategy. This year, Driven to Succeed needed financing to bridge that gap and to continue executing and seeking new contracts simultaneously. An injection of working capital through a $100,000 LISC loan allows the company to cover expenses on the projects and meet contract completion dates. This loan is made possible in part thanks to the Abbott-LISC Initiative to Support Diverse Businesses in Health, a partnership that provides pooled loan loss reserve and more affordable interest rates to eligible businesses.
Latina-led organization New Economics for Women (NEW) purchases a building with support from a $5.5 million LISC acquisition loan. In doing so, NEW nullified this deed’s original racist directive, taking ownership of this property to create a new vision that centers people of color. NEW will improve the acquired property to build mixed-use space for commercial use and affordable housing. When complete, the site will be home to 60 housing units, with inclusion of LA Unified School District (LAUSD) staff in mind.
