Here at Accion we are extremely proud to share with the world our first-ever Annual Report. When we began our first full year in January of 2012, we had a vision for amplifying the work of our five member organizations through building national partnerships, focusing on outcomes evaluation and research and fostering knowledge exchange and collaborationacross the Network.
What motivates us to continue innovating and growing are entrepreneurs like Trudy Alston, the woman we are honored to feature on our report cover. Perseverance and can-do attitude are qualities that she epitomizes; these are characteristics she shares with every business owner with whom Accion works.
We hope these few pages will help you to understand why we feel so blessed to be able to do this work. And to enhance the Annual Report experience we’ve published an interactive online report, where you can delve deeper into our national partnerships, member news and client stories.
We would love to hear what you think. Please feel free to share your thoughts with us via comment, email, or twitter (@Accion_US). We can’t wait to share with you 2013’s report!
