Do you know how your bank is investing the dollars you’ve parked with them? Hint: It’s not all good. CNote has a different model. They invest your deposits with non-profit CDFIs, which lend to minority- and female-owned businesses in local communities. And CNote pays a higher return than a typical savings model, though to be sure, it is not FDIC insured. Today, I opened an account with CNote, and I plan to move a small amount of savings into the account to see how it works. I’m excited to put my savings to work helping minority and female entrepreneurs.
