Building Financial Sovereignty for Wisconsin’s Native Businesses, Tribal Enterprises, Families and Communities.
Who We Are
The Wisconsin Indigenous Economic Development Corporation (WIEDC), formerly known as the Wisconsin Indian Business Alliance (WIBA), is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation and a coalition of non-profit Native Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs).
Our mission is to expand Native economic development by building the financial sovereignty of Native individuals, families, Native-owned businesses, Tribal enterprises and communities in Wisconsin.
What We Do
Working together, WIEDC's Members collaborate and leverage resources to maximize access to loans, training and counseling to best serve the enrolled Members of the 11 Federally recognized Tribes in Wisconsin – both on and off reservation communities.
WIEDC's Members collectively 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.
See who we are, what we do, and a couple of the Native businesses we have helped.
