Ascent is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that strives to aid and accelerate developing communities. Through our financial education services and small business lending programs, we develop relationships with individuals and local businesses that have the potential to excel but are excluded from the assistance of traditional financial institutions.
Small Business Loans
We understand the impact of small businesses on the community. We provide microloans that enable small businesses in Linden, Franklinton, Hilltop, and other developing areas to reach their potential.
Personalized Business Assistance
We work diligently to develop trust and personal connections with Columbus’ small businesses. Our friendly lending services incorporate an opportunity to work 1 on 1 with one of our student consultants to prepare financial statements and a wholesome loan application.
We are a firm believer that knowledge is power, and that financial education is a crucial step to financial stability. Through our tailored financial education programs, we help our clients achieve financial autonomy. Our partnership with other non-profits allows us to reach a broad audience while our 1 on 1 sessions provide a more personal experience.
