ACCION approved the loan for several rea- sons, including the social ben- efits of Carr's chosen profession, which also provides her an in- come through DVD sales.

The organization looks for character: hardworking small-business owners and emerging entrepre- neurs who share the organization's values of passion, a pioneering spirit, integrity, commitment to excellence and a history of accountability. ACCION and most lenders also require borrowers to meet basic criteria, including: Cash flow: The lender evalu- ates the business's monthly in- come and expenses to determine whether the borrower can cover a monthly loan payment. The or- ganization considers whether the loan will increase the business's income and often works with bor- rowers to make the most of their financial resources. Credit history: A credit re- port provides insight into a PO- tential borrower's previous rela- tionships with creditors• The lender reviews the most im- portant elements of the credit re- port, including the credit score• Collateral: A willingness to pledge items of value to secure a loan until it is repaid is an impor- tant indicator of client commit- ment. An ACCION loan can be used for a variety of business pur- poses that promise to improve an individual's financial health. Loans can be used to buy or up- grade equipment, purchase in- ventory or property or for market- ing. If the borrower doesn't meet ACCION's loan standards, the or- ganization will work with him to improve his financial position. Learn more about ACCION New Mexico. Arizona.
