MoneySmart Seminar with Cathay Bank

Esther Wee, Senior Vice President and Director of Marketing & CRA Officer, Cathay Bank, is giving opening remarks.

Small business owners face many challenges when starting and running their own businesses, especially immigrant small business owners. Many areas can seem intimidating, such as taxes, insurance, and bookkeeping. Other times, they may find it difficult to qualify for loans and understand what is necessary to access capital. Adding to this barrier is the fact that much of the information is in English, a second language for these immigrant small business owners.

To help demystify finances, Chinatown Service Center Small Business Program, in collaboration with Cathay Bank, have organized a two-day seminar for the fourth consecutive years, entitled Money Smart for Small Businesses. It took place on May 14th and May 21st in Cathay Bank’s headquarter in El Monte, and was presented in Mandarin.

The seminar is based on the curriculum jointly created by the Federal Deposit Insurance Company and the US Small Business Administration. CSC staff, Cathay Bank bankers and guest speakers who are experts from business management, accounting, banking, insurance, and lending volunteered their time to share their knowledge with students.

CSC were joining the mission to end veteran homelessness in Greater Los Angeles at United Way's HomeWalk on Saturday, November 19th, 2016 at Grant Park. Thank you all CSC Warriors Homwwalks (Board Members, staffs, friends & families) and donors!

Homelessness is the most extreme form of poverty. There are over 47,000 homeless people in Los Angeles County, including thousands of women, children, and veterans who sleep on our streets each night. Did you know that it costs tax payers less to house homeless people than to leave them on the streets?    


Heroes of HomeWalk 2015 - Board Treasurer Ms. Gloria Tang and Board Member, Ms. Heidi Kwok, who fundraised more than $500.
