Paving the way
Creating equitable access to capital

Small business plays a vital role in our community. Businesses cannot grow, however— in revenue, size or impact—without access to capital. But historically, entrepreneurs—especially women and people of color—face barriers to traditional lending due to racial and gender inequalities, and oftentimes a lack of generational wealth as well.

ASSETS meets this need through forward-thinking and equitable loan products as well as financial counseling and services. We offer businesses a way to fuel their growth, while rewarding them for fueling the growth of their community.

As a social impact restaurant, we had difficulty getting funding from traditional sources. The ASSETS [Impact] Loan was timely and very helpful, because without it we wouldn’t have been able to secure our new location.
