Community Capital is a nonprofit SBA-certified lender that invests in local communities across the Hudson Valley. In addition to lending, it offers free business counseling sessions, workshops and webinars.
“While our entrepreneurs might need a loan, they also seek guidance on strategic planning, financial analysis and marketing,” said Kimberlie Jacobs, Community Capital’s executive director. “The KeyBank Foundation grant will help us provide these much-needed resources to our growing base of Hispanic business owners.”
“Our goal is to be a trusted partner to Hudson Valley businesses and we want to help them thrive and transform the way they manage and grow their business,” said Joe Markey, KeyBank’s Hudson Valley and Metro New York market president. “Community Capital’s Hispanic Entrepreneurship Initiative is right in line with our approach, and we are happy to help the organization as it provides business owners with the resources they need to grow and expand in our region.”
