Paving the way
Creating 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 innovative 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.
