CRIF provides Small Business and Entrepreneurship Training, targeting aspiring entrepreneurs, minority and women-owned small businesses with 1-15 employees. We identify low-income communities and outreach to individuals earning less than $50,000 a year. Participants are encouraged to enroll in Credit and Money Management, Credit Counseling, and Small Business Technical Assistance to ensure they are equipped to handle the financial challenges of operating a small business.
Like many other financial literacy nonprofits, the mission of CRIF is to educate and empower. The difference is that CRIF connects that empowerment and educational directly to the personal banker–directly to that new bank account, to that loan officer, and to the start of a relationship with a financial institution that could potentially last a lifetime.
