Why are you interested in becoming a Trustee?
We run a small business incubator in our county, and we are eager to connect our entrepreneurs to needed capital to launch their ventures.
What is the mission of your organization?
To design development projects within under-resourced rural communities of the Mississippi Delta Region.
Borrower Due Diligence
How will you decide who to endorse as a borrower? What due diligence will you conduct?
Any borrower we submit, will have already gone through a rigorous 8 week course on starting a business, and we will have already worked with the entrepreneur at great lengths to help them prepare for the launch of their venture.
We take an interim-business-partner approach with our entrepreneurs, so those we would consider endorsing will have already gone through many phases of "stress tests" prior to endorsement.
Community/Economic Development 501 (c) (3) Non-Profit
This is the type of organization that the Trustee is.
What are Trustee tiers?
Trustee tiers determine the number of endorsements a Trustee can make and what loan sizes they can endorse. All Trustees begin as a pilot and can advance in tier depending on their borrowers' repayment performance.
