Roanhorse Consulting

Roanhorse Consulting, LLC is an Indigenous women-owned firm that supports community-led solutions in addressing social, economic, health, and well-being challenges; co-creates opportunities and spaces that challenge systemic barriers through power-building and self-determination; reframes and strengthens systems through an equity and justice lens; and builds the capacity of all clients. Roanhorse is a leading organization in the creation of Character Based Lending models which are alternative lending and financing mechanisms that focus on trust and relationships to move capital. It is continuing to work at both local and national levels in partnership with financial institutions and community organizations to help “prove” its risk models and demonstrate financial institutions’ abilities to take on and deploy additional capital in culturally sensitive and appropriate ways. AmbitioUS is providing a two-year expenditure responsibility grant to support Roanhorse Consulting and its Indigenous, women-led principals who are contributing to an emerging alternative economic paradigm that includes and works for Native American communities.
