We at TMB are extremely excited to share the establishment of our Sister organization – Access Granted, Inc. – a nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation!
We assist financial institutions in funding bankable underserved Minority, Women, and Disadvantaged Enterprises (MWDBEs). To date, our clients have legitimately received over $8 million in approved loans, lines of credit, and grants from federal, state, and local governments and private foundations.
Our Founder, Talibah M. Bayles is a Birmingham, Alabama native and current resident. Our organization identifies as 100% black-owned 100% woman-owned with a mission to advance economic opportunity for MWDBEs seeking equal access to working capital.
The vision of our firm is an inclusive economy in which all MWDBEs have equal access to premium bookkeeping & tax advisory services.
Towards this mission and vision, we collaborate with local, state, and federal government entities, CDFIs, and other financial organizations to provide MWDBEs with strategic access to free (or radically discounted) bookkeeping and tax advisory services.
On August 10, 2021, I announced my personal challenge to get 100 black businesses bankable! I’m excited to see how responsive the small business community has responded to this challenge.
We are also seeking community partners and sponsors to augment the scope of this uniquely positioned opportunity to provide real results to our underserved community. If you are a financial institution (bank, CDFI, private foundation) interested in more information on how your organization and maximize the success of this challenge, I’d love to speak further on this opportunity.
