What is Accion?

Since our founding in 1961, we have worked tirelessly to empower people who are underserved, revolutionizing financial services for people who are left out.

Mission & vision

3 Billion People Live in or Near Poverty

We believe that every individual deserves to access, use, and benefit from a full range of high-quality, affordable financial services.

Accion has proven time and time again that financial services can be made available; that individual lives and the prosperity of communities can be significantly enhanced; and that this can be done at scale and sustainably. Our work helps people, small businesses, and communities grow and thrive. We challenge and engage the industry, its leaders, and its regulators to achieve a financially inclusive world.
