Women’s Business Alliance Awarded a Grant from BB&T Bank

MOBILE, Ala. -  The Women’s Business Alliance (WBA) is a proud recipient of a $5,000 grant from the BB&T Community Development Department. 

The BB&T grant will fund, in part, the WBA’s Know Your Money Grow Your Money Financial Literacy Program (KYMGYM). Through the KYMGYM program, high school seniors in five rural counties will gain the opportunity to greatly improve their level of knowledge and skills in financial education.  The KYMGYM curriculum consists of eight components, from the dangers of credit card debt and bad credit, to creating a personal budget, the importance of saving and investing, and assisting them in creating a plan to achieve their financial goals.

About the WBA and its Programs: The Women’s Business Alliance provides extensive business training, coaching, and networking opportunities to seven counties in South Alabama, with their mission being the economic empowerment of women by assisting them to start and grow successful small businesses. The WBA, a nonprofit organization, serves as an umbrella for two projects: the Women’s Business Center of Rural Alabama (WBCRAL) and the Women’s Business Center of South Alabama (WBCSA). WBCRAL serves Clarke, Conecuh, Escambia, Monroe, and Washington counties and WBCSA serves Baldwin and Mobile counties.
