Too many refugees, immigrants and low-income community members are unable to transform their dreams into a reality. EDG was founded with a primary focus on giving these individuals the chance to start and operate successful small businesses.
In a nutshell, we serve as a bridge toward self-sufficiency for individuals residing throughout the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area, giving them access to loan capital and help clients improve their general business skills.
We offer additional critical assistance and services beyond microloans. We help clients create effective strategies and provide training on topics related to the fundamental aspects of operating a small business, business incubator services and offer tips on how to create a viable business plan, tax clinics, marketing, risk management and other services.
