How to Fund or Expand your Business


With a 27-year history in Southern California, Accessity has worked with thousands of small business owners, each on their own unique entrepreneurial journey. We know how challenging the road can be, especially without adequate capital to make your business grow and prosper. With access to business loans and a resource network, Accessity clients boast a 94% business survival rate, almost double the national average, and we are ready to help you in building a thriving business.

Your unique story of starting your business, overcoming adversities, learning lessons, and reaching goals is what inspires us to work creatively to meet your business needs by using more equitable eligibility criteria and tailoring our capital, resources, and education to meet you where you are on your business journey.

Some of our clients start a business to supplement their employment income and thereby support their family, some have a dream of creating jobs for others, others have a novel idea or vision, or are talented artisans or skilled technicians. Wherever they are in their journey, we have a 27-year history of supporting business startups and expansions, and our clients see a higher success rate than the national average. 94% of Accessity-funded businesses remained open two-to-three years after their loan.
