Accion Chicago

Launched in 1994, Accion Chicago is an alternative lending organization dedicated to providing credit and other business services to small business owners who do not have access to traditional sources of financing.  Unlike conventional financing groups that make loans based on revenue, collateral, and/or credit, Accion Chicago’s lending is largely character-based and relies on a client’s commitment to his/her business and references from customers and suppliers.  Since its inception, Accion Chicago has made nearly 4,000 loans totaling $31 million.
