“EforAll is thrilled to partner with HarborOne to help our Accelerator program graduates use their EforAll training to more easily apply for a SSB loan.”, said Donna Criscuolo, Executive Director for EforAll South Coast. “Access to financial capital is challenging for all small business owners but particularly difficult for the entrepreneurs that we focus on – women and BIPOC entrepreneurs. “
