Justine PETERSEN welcomes Associated Bank as the latest investor into our Emerging Markets Loan Fund. With a $250,000 commitment, Associated Bank’s participation ensures the availability of deployable small business capital for under-resourced businesses located throughout the bank’s footprint, which includes Metro East and Central Illinois. The Emerging Markets Loan Fund is a special purpose vehicle (SPV) investment opportunity for financial institutions, philanthropic foundations and private wealth that ultimately builds equity for Justine PETERSEN’s CDFI (community development financial institution) while providing access to safe and affordable capital to small businesses at various stages of development.
