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.

4 Personal Finance Tips for Small Business Owners

Your business will always be affected by your personal finances, especially when you’re first starting up. Sure, you’ll want to eventually separate your personal finances from your business finances, but you need to first make sure your personal finances are in order because they can either hinder or fuel the growth of your business… and ultimately lead to its failure or success.
