Allies for Community Business


Site Description: 

We believe that entrepreneurs from any background can start and grow businesses that create wealth for their families and communities. We provide the capital, coaching, and collaboration entrepreneurs need to grow great businesses in their communities.

Student Responsibilities:
Because we want to offer meaningful opportunities to make a difference, Allies for Community Business (A4CB) will work with each SSLP student to define specific goals and the scope of the project(s) on which the student will focus their time at A4CB. SSLP students can expect to interact directly with entrepreneurs, assist at A4CB events, support our microlending and/or coaching processes, work with various A4CB teams to analyze data and outcomes, and take on a variety of other tasks. An SSLP student could be a good fit for A4CB if they solve problems creatively, manage time efficiently, attend to details meticulously, communicate effectively in writing and verbally, collaborate flexibly with colleagues in a diverse and changing environment, and believe strongly in A4CB’s vision and mission.
