Where access to capital and community meet you.

Accessity, formerly Accion serving Southern California, opens the doors of financial opportunity for entrepreneurs through access to small business loans and a community of support and resources.

Small businesses are the economic engine that drives our country

New businesses are launched by women and entrepreneurs of color at a faster rate than others, though often they lack equitable access to loan capital, expert guidance and a business support network. That’s where Accessity comes in.
