Our Impact

Our Impact

Together with our partner Accion, we are strengthening small businesses by removing the barriers around capital and mentoring. Since 2008, we have provided nearly $24.5M in capital to more than 1,650 food and beverage businesses in 35 states. These loans have helped to preserve or create nearly 6,700 jobs from coast to coast. And because we know a loan alone is not enough, we’ve provided experienced mentoring and advice to more than 8,000 small business owners.
