Ascendus, formerly Accion East, empowers low- to moderate-income (LMI) business owners with access to capital and financial education. With economic opportunity, these entrepreneurs – often individuals of color and women – can build assets, better provide for their families, create employment opportunities for their neighbors, and strengthen their communities.
We’re here to help you succeed. At Ascendus, we work together with you to advance your business as well as your life. We’re dedicated to helping passionate entrepreneurs build successful businesses that provide for their families and improve their communities.
We’ve changed our name from Accion East to Ascendus. Why now, and what does it mean for you? Find out in this short video.
Are you eager, passionate, and courageous? Do you truly believe in your business and the good it provides? If so, then let’s talk. Some lenders overlook the tenacity of small business owners. At Ascendus, we see your potential as good business.
Every entrepreneur is different. Every story is different. Every business is different. We understand this, which is why our loan products are customized to meet your business needs. Together we’ll work to create a plan that is right for you and right for your business.
Knowledge leads to confidence and long-term success. From helping you build a business plan to connecting you with local partners and government agencies, we’re committed to providing you with the expertise you need to succeed.
We are more flexible than other lenders, which means we see beyond traditional lender measures and forms. If you have a good idea or a thriving business, we can find a way to get the resources you need.
I’ve had customers for 15 years, since I started out of my home. People keep coming back and many have become my good friends. I come to the store always happy.
The experience of working with Ascendus was awesome, particularly the excitement they showed in my progress and in my business.
While the focus of our success is always on the small business owners we serve,
we’re proud of the recognition and accreditations we’ve received for our work.
