US Bank and Meta Prosper Partner to Support Asian Small Businesses


Unlocking Financial Prosperity for Asian Small Businesses - U.S. Bank partners with Meta Prosper to provide financial literacy resources and programming during AANHPI Heritage and Small Business Month.

“U.S. Bank is excited to partner with Meta Prosper to offer additional financial resources to support Asian-owned small businesses,” said Carl Jordan, executive vice president, California small business and branch banking for U.S. Bank.

“We know that many small businesses face prominent gaps, including access to information, connections, and capital. We are focused on providing our tools and resources to help these Asian small business owners so they can grow and thrive.”

Discover how U.S. Bank is empowering Asian American entrepreneurs by joining forces with the US Pan Asian American Chamber of Commerce Education Foundation (USPAACC). As an esteemed member, U.S. Bank helps connect businesses to a wide range of opportunities, from contracts and professional engagements to educational programs.

“Today’s announcement of the partnership between U.S. Bank and Meta Prosper to provide financial resources that will help Asian American-owned businesses grow and succeed is fantastic news, especially as we celebrate Asian American Native Hawaiian Pacific Islander Heritage Month and Small Business Month,” said USPAACC National President and CEO Susan Au Allen. “Asian American-owned businesses were among the hardest hit during the pandemic, so ensuring that they have expanded access to capital and connections is critical for their future success. USPAACC applauds this collaboration, and we are proud to have U.S. Bank and Meta as our members.”
