Maureen's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support
A loan helped Hiring a new employee and outreach.
Maureen has been in the media and production business for over 10 years. In 2002 she moved to New York from Florida, where she grew up, to work as an editor and producer. She eventually became a freelancer and about two years ago, with a growing client base, she decided to establish a full-service media consulting and production company. Maureen enjoys her work and is dedicated to helping non-profit organizations use media to effectively disseminate their message. She heard the same response from many banks, which was that they couldn’t lend to a business of her size at this time. Given that she needed capital to sustain and to help grow her business, Maureen decided to look into microfinance options and so she came to ACCION USA. With her loan, Maureen is hiring a new employee to help grow the business’ client base. She will also use a portion of the loan to cover the costs associated with developing new partnerships with other media companies to initiate new projects. Maureen has established her business and created a loyal clientele that depends on her for their media needs. Her long-term vision for her business is to help expand her outreach to serve more non-profits.
