Imagine coming to a new country, where not only the language and customs are foreign to you, but the financial system is so new and complicated, you don’t know where to start. Now imagine that there’s a organization out there who has your back.

Loan officer, Aaron Lackman, of the Business Center for New Americans, joins us live in the studio today to talk about the amazing work that BCNA has done to provide microloans to refugees and immigrants who are business owners or aspiring business owners. If you are an immigrant (or a woman who lives in Queens or Staten Island!!) who has a dream to own their own business, this show is for you.

BCNA also helps lower income families buy their first homes, with a down payment assistance program and education workshops on the homebuying process (aNashvilleone can tap into this service, not just immigrants!).

BCNA also offers free workshops that are open to the public on running and marketing a small business. See current workshops here: http://www.Nashvillebcna.org/bcna/events/
