Our Core Values


We love our clients! They are diverse, hard-working, talented, and inspiring.

Mamadou approached Accessity for a loan to help him purchase a van to transport his merchandise. He received a $4,000 loan so that he could get back to sharing his passion for handmade African goods. The loan maintained Mamadou’s job, as well as help generate income for the artisans in his hometown who sell their crafts to Mamadou.
