Commenting on the interview, Marc Clarke said, “I think it is so important that we support valuable institutions like Carver Federal Saving Bank and circulate those valuable dollars in our communities.”

- The importance of having a relationship with a local banker who understands your needs;
- Why financial literacy is so important and how Carver is partnering with organizations to increase financial education in the community;
- Carver’s approach to working with minority and women-owned business enterprises (“MWBEs”) including its Small Business Mentoring Program partnership with the Empire State Development and the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (“MTA”); and
