First Nations Oweesta Corporation

Oweesta taken from the Mohawk word for money is a CDFI fund that supports and develops Native American CDFIs. From its inception in 2003, Oweesta has build operations that span its two locations of Longmont, CO and Rapid City, SD and supports more than 42 Native American CDFIs in all 50 states of the US. ProMicro salutes this larger-scale venture because of its mission to build and increase assets of low-income Native American entrepreneurs and build resilient local communities through its tribal economic sovereignty initiatives.
