Who Is WIBA?

Working together, WIBA Members are Native Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs) that collaborate and leverage resources to maximize access to loans, training and counseling to best serve Enrolled Members of the 11 Federally recognized Tribes in Wisconsin – both on and off reservation communities.
