Last month, Bankable made a statement, as a company, that we would stand with the Black Community and Black-owned small businesses in Indiana. We recommitted to listening, learning, changing, and innovating so that we can better amplify and support people of color.
One way we are showing our commitment to the minority-owned small businesses is by partnering with Old National Bank. Old National Bank has provided a grant of $50,000 that will be used to provide fair and affordable loans and technical assistance to minority-owned businesses who need extra support amidst the COVID-19 crisis.
This will help support and elevate minority-owned businesses in Indiana who are members of Mid-States Minority Supplier Development Council (MSDC). Part of the mission of Mid-States MSDC is to promote successful minority enterprises in Indiana by being an advocate for minority-owned businesses and provide economic assistance. This is done through networking, coaching, training, and more.
While we feel very honored and excited to be a part of this venture, we are still continuing a never-ending commitment to seek and create more opportunities for minority-owned businesses. There are more projects and initiatives in the works behind the scene that we will share when we can. So, expect to hear more from us soon.
