Asset Building through Credit – Episode 1: Intro to the Lean Canvas

November 18, 2014  • FIELD

The Asset Building through Credit (ABC) Pilot Program, led by FIELD at the Aspen Institute and funded by the Citi Foundation, had promising results. Microenterprise programs that offered secured credit cards and credit coaching saw their participants’ credit scores increase significantly. With higher scores, these participants were more prepared to access business loans and achieve future micro-entrepreneurial success.

But once the pilot program is complete, how can its success be sustained over the long-term? Episode 1: Intro to the Lean Canvas is the first of a three-part series answering that question. In this video, we explain what the Lean Canvas is and how it can help microenterprise organizations develop a successful business model.
