Microlenders Forum 2022: Unmasking Economic Justice

September 15, 2022 - 9:00 AM

Join us Thursday, September 15, 2022 for one of our favorite events of the year, the annual MicroLenders Forum 2022. .

We’ve missed you! Let’s celebrate the ability to come together again in person at Wells Fargo, in the Annex Building: 333 Market St, San Francisco, CA 94105. Arrive early to meet old friends and get to know new ones.

Our theme throughout the year has been: Unmasking Economic Justice for Small Business Recovery. We will be exploring this theme from different angles of lending, including innovations in equitable lending, fostering support from accessing capital, and more.

Get ready for a fire site chat with our very own Carolina Martinez, CEO of CAMEO on reaching underserved entrepreneurs with more capital. The Federal Reserve will present new California data from the Small Business Credit Survey, how it looks compared to national trends, and we’ll discuss how that might affect how lenders react. After lunch, we’ll have a panel discussion on innovations in equitable lending, a member showcase, raffle prizes from your clients and more.

Stay tuned for Guest Speakers!
