ACCION International gives people the tools they need to work their way out of poverty. By providing “micro” loans and business training to poor women and men who start their own businesses, ACCION’s partner lending organizations help people work their own way up the economic ladder, with dignity and pride. ACCION International was founded in 1961 to address the desperate poverty in Latin America’s cities. Begun as a student-run volunteer effort in the shantytowns of Caracas, ACCION today is one of the premier microfinance organizations in the world, with a network of lending affiliates that spans Latin America, the United States and Africa. Over the last four decades, ACCION has built a tradition of developing innovative solutions to poverty.
