Accion in the U.S. is a nonprofit community lender dedicated to helping entrepreneurs in underserved communities generate income, build assets, create jobs and achieve financial success through business ownership. The Accion network serves small businesses in communities across the U.S. and is made up of three certified Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs). They work hand-in-hand with entrepreneurs to overcome every obstacle standing between them and their dream of owning a thriving business.
Microsoft News is partnering with Accion in the U.S. for our Poverty Next Door project. This series takes a closer look at who is poor in America to reveal that traditional stereotypes and assumptions about who lives in poverty no longer apply in today’s world of unaffordable housing, crippling college debt, climate change and other forms of systematic marginalization. We are proud to support the work of Accion in the U.S. to empower entrepreneurs in underserved communities. Please join us.
