Accion has just funded a young start-up photographer, Salinas. Salinas has always loved photography. Since she was a child she was fascinated by light, texture and landscapes. Salina first began photographing as a hobby, working for friends and family that wanted her to document important events. Salinas' hobby quickly turned into a full time business as people began asking for her services in particular to document weddings in and around Seattle.

All of her work to date has been booked by word of mouth. The biggest difficulty that Salinas has encountered in getting fully up and running has been not having the right equipment that is of the highest quality in order to promote her best products. Salinas has lacked the capital to purchase in particular a new camera. Salinas needs a loan from Accion to purchase both the first and second lens of a Nikon professional camera. These items are expensive and Salinas would rather not put this lofty purchase on her credit card. Please assist Salinas to purchase a new camera for her business! Please visit Salinas' work at
