The Northwest Native Development Fund (NNDF) supports small, Native-owned businesses on the Colville and Spokane reservations in Washington.
As a Native community development financial institution (CDFI), NNDF is growing economic opportunity within Native communities, opening doors to loans, credit, jobs, and much more.
So what’s NNDF’s secret to success? It’s especially proud of a partnership with Wells Fargo’s Diverse Community Capital Program, which provides lending capital to CDFIs serving small businesses and entrepreneurs. The partnership was hard work, and it didn’t happen overnight. But it’s running now as a result.
NNDF is able to connect Native American entrepreneurs with more capital and with culturally specific advice and training that helps bring their dreams to life. Insights about two exceptional Native entrepreneurs living in Indian Country show the impact. Both turned to NNDF to launch their businesses and meet the needs of their communities.
