ADC champions African immigrants and refugees, helping them overcome barriers to financial security and success. Our staff is made up of highly qualified and talented individuals from an array of African nations, and they bring passion and wide-ranging expertise to serving the African community in Minnesota. We share and honor our generous sponsors’ vision—founded on the conviction that stimulating markets among the state’s growing ethnic communities benefits us all.
Amal (name and image changed to maintain privacy), first came to ADC in 2005. Her husband at the time was looking for a small business loan and had heard that ADC was a good resource. His plan was approved and he received a small loan to expand his business. After a difficult divorce a few years later, Amal was left with overwhelming debt, most of it in her name only. In 2007 she began working with one of our financial counselors. With the financial discipline she learned working with ADC, these dreams and financial goals are well within her reach.
