October 25, 2021 Microlending Essentials: Virtual October 2021

Lending to small and micro businesses is a challenging undertaking for a nonprofit organization and requires the development of dozens of systems and capacities, one of which is quality underwriting. Few trainings exist for staff on the fundamental skills for consistent, quality microloan underwriting, so we developed one!

Also, when coaching and training staff understand underwriting basics, they can help their clients be more successful at applying for loans.

CAMEO offers Microlending Essentials (MILES), a microlending underwriting class for the CDFI and business-coaching nonprofit community several times a year. This introductory training covers multiple analyses: global cash, credit history, debt-to-income, and bank statement. Participants also underwrite and write credit memos for three actual microloan applications.

October 28, 2021 October Entrepreneurship Advantage Virtual Meetup

Advocacy Efforts near and far…
In this month’s meet up, we’ll explore a local issue that could be affecting your clients – commercial back rent – and learn about federal small business recovery efforts.
The Governor’s executive order that prevented commercial evictions of small businesses and non-profit organizations for nonpayment of rent expired on Thursday, September 30, 2021. We’ve invited our colleagues from the Small Business Anti-Displacement Network (SBAN) to talk about their work on commercial gentrification and displacement. They’re currently recruiting practitioners to share strategies in commercial anti-displacement in key markets including LA.
Then  we’ll hear from Representative Judy Chu about her support for microbusinesses and the need to ensure federal programs are equitable and inclusive.  And of course we’ll have the opportunity to network.
