Funded by Sam’s Club Giving Program, the WE-Lend Initiative aims to grow women-owned businesses and jump-start job creation by increasing access to affordable loans and innovative training for women entrepreneurs. As part of WE-Lend, Accion has partnered with the National Community Reinvestment Coalition and Women Impacting Public Policy to:

  • Train Women’s Business Centers to become microlenders;
  • Strengthen microlenders’ relationships with Women’s Business Centers nationwide, creating a more effective partnership that matches more women with the right lender to access financing to grow their businesses; and
  • Increase the capacity of Women’s Business Centers to provide financial literacy and loan readiness training.
