Grow St. Bernard 2020 | Session 5: Financing Business Success
Speakers: Scott Simonson, Vice President and Commercial Lender at HOPE Credit Union
With starting a business comes inherent risk and liability, often scaring people off. However, Community Development Finance Institutions such as HOPE Credit Union bring friendliness and camaraderie to the banking sector. Started with a goal of benefitting the community through non-predatory financial practices, organizations like HOPE, where guest speaker Scott Simonson works in Commercial Lending, are changing the way small businesses do business. Come learn more on September 30th at the 5th session of the Grow St. Bernard Series.
