Background / History

In 2019, Truist Bank entered into a Community Benefit Plan under which Truist Bank will lend or invest $60 billion to low and moderate income (LMI) borrowers and in LMI communities over a three-year period from 2020 through 2022. The Friends of African Union (, The African Diaspora Directorate (#AfiDiDi2063), and the Black Male Community Council of Philadelphia (BMCCP) have partnered with Qme Business Solutions Ecosystem ( to help lead the Philadelphia charge to organize, unify, and galvanize People of African Descent in the African Diaspora in the USA and bring our community development (CD) projects and small business funding requests as part of the Truist Community Benefits Plan (CBP). This is a 3-year agreement and so the clock is ticking. That does not mean the projects have to take just 3 years.

Black Folks Plan

Our communities of People of African Descent need to move quickly to get projects organized, vetted, and ready to go before Truist bank. The Friends of the African Union (FAU), the African Diaspora Directorate (AFiDiDi), the Black Male Community Council of Philadelphia (BMCCP), and Qme Business Solutions Ecosystem ( have developed a plan and solutions to lead this effort to help these community businesses create a win-win partnership with banking partners. The Support Solution that we are taking to Truist bank is called “The Black Folk’s Plan” (BFP) and in Philadelphia the #BlackfolksplanforPhiladelphia.

“The Black Folks Plan is uniquely collaborative because it brings together a ‘collective voice’ for our communities while integrating financial management accountability solutions within the support digital solutions, and built-in financial and business support experts, auditing, reporting and oversight functions to move our communities into an improved more competitive, fair economic playing field.” – Bentley Charlemagne, President and Chairman, Qme Business Solutions Ecosystem –

The FAU, AFiDiDi, and BMCCP selected Qme Business Solutions Ecosystem ( as their business and technology braintrust who has developed the rail solutions that will provide business expertise consultations and support services to the participating businesses in this rollout and availability of the Black Folk Plan OnBoarding Projects Engine, powered by This is the beginning of a multi-year rollout of our global IT solutions which will connect and unify grassroots support for challenged and underserved communities nationally to empower, educate, and support the success of a new generation of businesses who will pave the way for businesses and funders to have mutual benefits and gains.

Over the next 30 days, we will engage business owners of African descent to onboard their projects (e.g. Starting a Business and / or Growing a Business, Expanding a Building, Providing New Construction / Real Estate Development, Starting and or Expanding a Nonprofit Mission, Launching a Community Event, etc.) on the platform so that your project can be included in the first wave of vetted projects to go before Truist Bank on April, 2020. We will continue to engage Truist every quarter or sooner if necessary to evaluate and underwrite projects which will help our community businesses. The projects will include submissions from both for-profit and nonprofit organizations. The engine details the types of documents which will be needed to realistically validate a project before going to Truist Bank.

Working Together to do Economic Building, People Building, and Community Building

every possibility can come to fruition.”
