FCB Banks Invests $300k into JP’s Emerging Markets Loan Fund
Justine PETERSEN is proud to welcome FCB Banks as the most recent investor into JP’s Emerging Markets Loan Fund, joining a growing list of both and local and national investors that includes a range of financial institutions and philanthropic entities. The $300K investment by FCB Banks will be split 50/50 across the Missouri and Illinois markets, taking the form of small business loans to those businesses not positioned to access mainstream finance. The Emerging Markets Loan Fund is a uniquely designed equity-building instrument for Justine PETERSEN/Great Rivers Community Capital, birthed by CDFI peers Accion New Mexico (now DreamSpring). JP is grateful for FCB Bank’s continued support of mission lending on both sides of the Mississippi.
