Become an active part of the SBE Merchant Cooperative and lend your support to the communities in which they exist. Shoppers can choose to contribute their SBE Coins (or cash) to the Merchant Cooperative Fund that provides emergency money through zero interest loans to small Black businesses that may face a financial crisis. Every coin and cash you contribute goes 100% to the Merchant Cooperative Fund. AT SBE, shoppers are changing the economic environment for the better, building small Black businesses and the many underserved communities in which these businesses play a vital role. Shoppers are making an important statement: that local, small Black business need shoppers and to become a part of the national economy that benefits everyone.
