We are grateful to CAMEO and Citi Foundation for the opportunity to participate in the first Shared Services Center for CDFIs… We look forward to tapping into additional resources for the benefit of the communities we serve.

CAMEO Shared Services ecosystem has impacted the way we think about technology as a CDFI and we realized other CDFIs are facing similar technology issues… Their consultants provided us with actionable steps to create solutions.

Alex Alvarez, CIELO

CAMEO’s training has given me the tools to do my job better. I love that their focus is supporting and training those organizations that work directly with the underserved entrepreneur community. CAMEO has helped CIELO meet our mission for equity more effectively.
