Partnership for Community Action (PCA) (NM)
PCA believes we must address the wealth gap experienced by those most disadvantaged in our country. Access to capital is limited for immigrant communities because credit worthiness is exclusive to US lending institutions. PCA has partnered with local credit union, Nusenda, on a micro lending program focused on shifting the lending landscape. Loans through this Program create immediate access to capital for immigrant families, and credit worthiness is dependent solely on the borrower’s social capital. Since 2015, PCA has developed a network of over 50, home-based childcare providers, an often overlooked and under supported essential sector. Now, PCA seeks to amplify the impact of the Loan Program with home-based childcare business owners, sharing the impact of a child care provider’s economic insecurity on the children for whom they care. PCA will also continue to build a movement through power analysis and policy change, led by parents and families, to impact economic and educational systems proven inequitable.
