Small Business Loans in the U.S.

In the U.S., Accion Opportunity Fund creates economic opportunity by connecting small business owners to affordable capital and the business support they need to create and grow healthy enterprises and contribute to thriving local economies.

Launching dreams, empowering entrepreneurs

Accion Opportunity Fund works to create an inclusive, healthy financial system that supports the nation’s small business owners by connecting entrepreneurs to affordable capital, educational resources, coaching, and networks. Through innovative partnerships and outreach strategies, we target underserved entrepreneurs — including entrepreneurs of color, low-income entrepreneurs, and women — who often lack access to the financial services they need to build and grow their businesses.

Since I started working in the beauty salon, my dreams have come true. As a business owner, you need to have a lot of faith. I thank God for every day—you don’t know what is going to happen, what problems you’re going to face. I would tell other business owners to have hope for the future. When you trust that something is coming for you, you will work hard for it.
