Who Is WIBA?

WIBA is a coalition of non-profit organizations with a mission to expand Native economic development by building the financial sovereignty of Native individuals, families, Native-owned businesses and communities in Wisconsin.

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.

WIBA Members collectively work to bring millions of dollars to Wisconsin Indian Country from corporations, foundations and government programs to deliver our continuum of loan products and capacity-building technical assistance services to Native individuals, families, businesses and communities.
