International Institute - Micro-Enterprise VISTA - FT
The IICDC Micro-enterprise Development VISTA will support outreach and service delivery efforts to immigrants in need of micro-enterprise products and services. About half of our target market is at 50% or less of Area Median Income (AMI) and more than 90% are within 80% or less AMI. Without our support, these folks struggle to move out of poverty and into economic independence. Our program is the region’s only business and asset building program dedicated to this highly vulnerable population. We are able to provide these new Americans the products, services they need to build credit and start or strengthen their businesses.
International Institute For nearly 100 years International Institute has provided essential community integration services to each new wave of immigrants to St. Louis. We strive to serve all immigrants without regard to country of origin, race or religion. We believe that America becomes even stronger when we embrace new cultures and traditions. Our purpose is also to create a more welcoming community and shared prosperity for all residents.
