Micro Lending Academy: Lending Life Cycle and Technology

Lending Life Cycle and Technology

We know that FinTech’s technology led to an explosion of online lending, much of it usurious. Across the country, CDFIs are building their own online platforms for quality community lending — including our own Robert Lopez, COO of Valley Economic Development Corporation in Los Angeles.

Robert took a year off of community lending to work at Dealstruck. As Robert puts it, “I got an MBA in Process working there.” Fortunately for us, Robert came back to community lending. He feels strongly that FinTech has something to teach CDFI lenders and that we can make this technology our own. On Wednesday, June 15 at 3:00, he will share what he learned and demonstrate his new online system.

This will be a rich, provocative presentation and discussion. Don’t miss a chance to hear how the ‘other side’ does it and see how to use these powerful tools for your mission.
