WELend Primed for Growth
The WE Lend Initiative seeks to bridge the financing gap and empower women entrepreneurs to pursue their dreams. The WELend Initiative leverages the powerful networks and expertise of three national organizations dedicated to small business prosperity and growth: Accion, the U.S. Network, National Community Reinvestment Coalition (NCRC) and Women Impacting Public Policy (WIPP). The Initiative is sponsored by the Sam’s Club Giving Program. As a part of the initiative, NCRC developed this curriculum to support the growth of women entrepreneurs across the United States.
WELend Primed for Growth will teach women entrepreneurs about basic business financial management in an easy-to-understand format. The goal is to provide women entrepreneurs with the necessary information and tools that will allow them to make strategic financial decisions so that they are able to grow and expand their business into sustainable and profitable enterprises. Structured as an in-depth Question and Answer session, the curriculum answers some of the most common questions about several areas of business financial management, including budgeting and financial planning, filing taxes, accessing credit and risk management. The answers present what an entrepreneur needs to know, understand and implement regarding the day-to-day financial operations of a business.
All materials provided in this curriculum will be available to download.
