According to a May 2015 Wells Fargo study, entrepreneurs of color are more likely to report having credit challenges, be denied credit, and be in the start-up or growing phase when credit is most needed. Furthermore, a report by the U.S Department of Commerce, Minority Business Development Agency, found that minority business owners pay 1.4% higher interest rates, receive 48% lower loan amounts on average, and 33% of minority businesses making under $500,000 annually did not apply due to fear of rejection.
In an effort to combat this problem, the Latino Economic Development Center (LEDC), in partnership with JP Morgan Chase, Capital Impact Partners, the A. James & Alice B. Clark Foundation, Harbor Bank, and Wacif, is providing minority entrepreneurs in DC, Maryland and Virginia suburbs, and Baltimore City with access to capital and one-on-one technical assistance in order to create a more inclusive and diverse U.S. economy.
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
