Join the Louisiana Asset Funders Network for a convening of philanthropy, nonprofit practitioners, and community leaders as we explore innovations in financial capability. We will discuss strategies that improve the financial health of low income Louisianans, including Fintech (financial technology products) and other innovative models. 

Together, we have the opportunity to nurture the development of consumer-centric, inclusive, and impactful new models and tools that foster increased financial stability, savings, and credit building. 

Financial capability leads to:  

  • Better ability to absorb economic shocks

  • Increased future orientation and asset-building goals

  • Improved employment and housing options

  • Increased opportunities to get an affordable loan

Add your voice to the conversation as we explore the case for investments in financial capability, budding examples showing promise in our state, and stakeholder roles to increase impact to improve the financial resiliency of Louisianans.
