Rachel, Deborah, and Hector Reyna came to Accion to start a waste and recycling collection company. They say, “Our bank referred us to Adrian at Accion…Adrian supported our vision and guided us through the loan process so that we could get the funds to begin our business. We hope to use Accion again to help fund our next level of growth.”
