The founder’s mission is to in fact transcend the 2021 illusion of financial and economic inclusion by gaining equal access to the fundamental transformational instruments of credit at the office of US TREASURY required to SCALE MDI banks to adequately fund the EQUITY CAPITAL requirements of Minority Business Enterprise in the underserved African American LMI communities and thereto mitigate the “Unusual and Exigent Circumstances” continuing to further exacerbate the mortality rate of the now DYING African American Owned bank holding companies capacity to raise private capital domestically and or in the Global financial markets in the Spirit of the Freedman’s Savings and Trust Company.

The Freedman’s Saving and Trust Company, known as the Freedman’s Savings Bank, was a private savings bank chartered by the U.S. Congress on March 3, 1865, to collect deposits from the newly emancipated communities. Within 7 years of its formation, the bank opened 37 branches across 17 states and the District of Columbia and collected funds from over 67,000 depositors.[1] At the height of its success, the Freedman’s Savings Bank held assets worth more than $3.7 million in 1872 dollars, which translates to approximately $80 million in 2021.
