At this forum, we will have presentations and discussion on effective strategies to build small business lending capacity throughout the San Joaquin Valley. We will hear from effective practitioners how their platforms were developed, and strategies for regional stakeholders to support continued growth in the region’s community development infrastructure.

The objective of this Forum will encourage more small business lending activity in the San Joaquin Valley marketplace and open discussions on enhancing small business lending. This meeting is designed for participation by community organizations, financial institutions, and government agencies.
