COVID-19

How we're responding

During the coronavirus pandemic, financial inclusion is more critical than ever. Low-income families and small businesses are acutely vulnerable to the health and economic impact of a global pandemic. They are less likely to have access to quality, affordable health care and paid leave to care for sick family members. And without adequate savings, insurance, and credit, it will be hard for them to weather the crisis, deal with business disruptions, and maintain their livelihoods. Accion is working with our partners around the globe to adapt and respond to this challenge and offer solutions that help people stay resilient during this difficult time.
