regulators, governments and partner non-profits. The discussions have ranged
from the practical (construction, mortgage, and small business lending; job
opportunities, conferences, fundraising) to legislative (CRA, HMDA, and CDFI) to
the cutting edge (micro-loan funds, peer lending, local currency, targeting
"The best Community Development Banking resource in Cyberspace."
I am looking for a basic and brief primer on theory of CD finance...as
an intro to using finance as a development tool for a bunch of folks who
are not CD practitioners nor finance people...Kind of like variations on
the Rolling Stone article of a few years back. Have any of you come
across a relatively succinct and accessible article or other written
document that does this well?
