"What's most important to you. If you're interested in trying to use it for good; consider placing your funds with a CDFI. See how your money makes a difference. It could be very powerful." 

- Ebony Perkins

Community Development Finance Institutions (CDFIs) fund support systems where and when government, business and other nonprofits are missing underserved communities. Ebony Perkins of the Self-Help Credit Union (Self-Help.org) led an important conversation on the unique services of Self-Help Credit Union.

Ebony answers the following questions:

  • What's unique about CDFIs like Self-Help Credit Union?
  • Can you describe "Predatory Finance"
  • How do you your work as a part of "impact investing?" 
  • How can individuals and business get involved? 
  • What's the potential for CDFIs as institutions?
