Accion client, Jason Burns, a young Hispanic entrepreneur is a recipient ofmultiple Accion loans, the most recent of which is a Presto loan. Presto loans are loans under $8,000 with very quick turnaround times. Entrepreneurs applying for Presto loans receive a decision on the status of their application within hours of the application’s submission. If the application is approved for funding, funds are disbursed within 24 hours.
Grateful for the chance Jason has had to thrive as a business owner, he has volunteered his time as an Accion mentor and has gone on to contribute to Accion over $10,000 since 2006 when he was 21 years old to provide more opportunities for entrepreneurs looking for somebody to believe in their ability to succeed. Jason says, “I need to give what I can right now because my contribution mightmake that same difference for another entrepreneur.”
