Financing Programs for Certified Diverse Suppliers

Through their partnership with Citi, Dollar General is proud to make two separate programs available to our certified diverse supplier partners.|

Dollar General is committed to supporting minority, women, LGBTQ+, disabled, and veteran-owned business enterprises. To reinforce our commitment to ensuring an inclusive environment that minimizes barriers and allows diverse suppliers equitable opportunities to maximize their ability to effectively participate in Dollar General’s procurement process, Dollar General is proud to be working with Citi to offer a Sustainable Supply Chain Finance Program to our eligible certified diverse suppliers.

The program will use Citi’s Supplier Finance platform to process payments to organizations determined by Dollar General to be qualified diverse or minority-owned organizations. This new option launches with the goal of helping make access to working capital more affordable and equitable by offering attractive rates to qualified suppliers. The user-friendly interface, provided by Citi, enables suppliers to select the invoices they would like to receive early payments on. Through the early payment option, suppliers may be able to accelerate cash flows and improve their working capital.
