About the Presenter:
Tristan Brown has worked with Justine PETERSEN for a little under two years. In that short timeframe, he has assisted over 200 small businesses within the Central Illinois region, providing access to over $2.7 Million in capital through Justine PETERSEN’s microloan product. Justine PETERSEN is Illinois’ largest microlender, with mission lending being the main concept. The program brings capital to those who traditionally and historically haven’t been able to access the resources they’ve needed to succeed.
