HistoryBegan in 1994, when Accion made its first small business loan in Albuquerque, igniting a movement that today stretches to every corner of the five-state region. Micro-lending can trace its roots back more than 40 years with efforts to reduce extreme poverty in Latin America. Micro-lending now helps small business owners in Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, and Texas provide for themselves and their families. Since Accion made that first loan, Accion has helped small business owners in more than 400 communities, working in some of these states’ most under served urban neighborhoods and most isolated rural communities.
