About Glenroy March & Accion East

Around the age of 17, Glenroy knew that he wanted to contribute
to society, but he didn’t know what he wanted to provide to the world. Living
in his native Jamaica, he looked around and realized that his country lacked a
sense of couture style. Fashion—a longtime passion of Glenroy’s—suddenly seemed
like the perfect avenue for him. In 2003, he embarked down that road and in
2006, Glenroy came to America with his dreams in tote. Glenroy knew that he
wanted to launch a fashion line and he successfully did so; however, as his
brand grew, Glenroy knew that he needed funding in order to properly expand. He
approached numerous banks, each one unable to provide him with a loan due to
his poor credit history. It was then that Glenroy was referred to Accion, where
he received a loan to fund his new bowtie collection. After a successful launch
and repayment of the loan, Glenroy returned to Accion again for a bigger loan.Accion East is a nonprofit microlender that empowers low-to-moderate income
business owners through access to capital and financial education. Since
opening its doors in 1991, Accion East has provided over $140 million in
capital to small business owners, creating or sustaining over 96,800 jobs
within local communities.
