The Partnership

Accessity takes pride in its partnership with the Eva Longoria Foundation to support Latina entrepreneurs. This funding facilitates Spanish-language training events, access to capital, and communications outreach to raise awareness of Accessity’s loan and educational training programs.

This invaluable collaboration has enabled Accessity to launch the Academia de Accessity para el Éxito Empresarial, a Spanish-language initiative that has provided essential guidance to nearly 70 Latina entrepreneurs in establishing and formalizing their microenterprises since it was launched in 2020. Also, through the grant, Accessity also offers webinars and educational events in Spanish, reaching over 100 Latinas and equipping them with knowledge on crucial topics like marketing, banking, credit, and accessing financing

In 2013, Accessity launched the Eva Longoria Micro Loan Fund, which has disbursed nearly 80 loans and more than $650,000 to Latina-owned businesses.

Accessity remains dedicated to empowering Latina entrepreneurs through our collaborative efforts with the Eva Longoria Foundation, enabling them to achieve their business aspirations and drive economic growth in their communities.
