2: Harold Calla, First Nations Financial Management Board

Harold Calla remembers the day his business on Squamish Nation in British Columbia was turned down for a payday loan and what the bankers told him about needing “ministerial approval.”

Today, the executive chair of the First Nations Financial Management Board guides an operation that provides training and sets standards to help launch communities toward economic prosperity and financial security. Recorded at the First Nations Leading the Way conference in Treaty 7 Territory, Calgary, Alberta on May 30, 2019. Here for FNFMB website.
