Interview #38: Pamela Boivin | NiiJii Capital Partners, Inc.
In this latest edition of “Difference Makers,” NCN sits down with Pamela Boivin, who serves as Executive Director of NiiJii Capital Partners, Inc. (NiiCaP), a federally certified Native CDFI that provides alternative financing and development services for entrepreneurs and small businesses on the Menominee, Mole Lake, and Lac du Flambeau Reservations in Wisconsin.
A full-time employee with NiiCaP since 2008, Pamela also serves as Loan Officer for the organization. A member of the Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin, Pamela’s duties include client intake, project assessment, business plan assistance for loan applicants, loan application assistance, credit analysis for applicants, compliance reporting, and portfolio management. She also serves as Chairwoman of the Wisconsin Indigenous Economic Development Corporation, of which NiiCaP is a member. She has a bachelor’s degree with honors in Political Science and is certified in Asset Building Strategies, financial education curriculum, and financial curriculum training.
In this engaging conversation with NCN, Pamela shares how NiiCaP is working to directly and indirectly strengthen the Native small business ecosystem on the three reservations it serves, and how it has banded together with three other Native CDFIs in Wisconsin to secure additional resources to meet community needs.
