Eastern American CDC’s primary goal is to be a one stop financial service to the entrepreneur and small business owner. We consider the entrepreneur and the small business owner to be the heart and pioneering spirit of American business.

The most difficult challenge facing the entrepreneurs and small business owners today is simply: THE NEED FOR CAPITAL. While all entrepreneurs and small business owners work hard every day to achieve their business goals, they are not Financial Planners. Most small business owners are not familiar with navigating complex legal and financial documents which often translates to: NO ACCESS TO CAPITAL.

Eastern American CDC is a one stop shop serving financial products that the entrepreneur and small business owner needs on a daily basis. With our licensed ability to cooperate with local governments and financial institutions, Eastern American CDC creates a Cross Cultural Marketing Experience designed to assist the entrepreneur and small business owner in achieving success.
