The Axiom Advancement Corporation is a financial institution located in Pittsburgh's historic Hill District community. We exist to level the playing field in small  business lending through our commitment to fair lending laws, accountability to the communities we serve and by implementing industry best practices. Axiom is more than a funding source, we are a people focused community services organization, promising economic improvement.

Axiom is committed to bridging the gap in lending by serving as a financial institution as well as a technical assistance agency. Our efforts are focused on eliminating the financial literacy and credit issue barriers that prevents minority/women business owners from accessing much needed capital and other financial resources. 

Axiom has been identified as an emerging Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI). Although our mission distinguishes us due to our focus on the MWDBE, we are uniquely positioned to enhance the work of existing CDFI's,  as well as the community development initiatives of local and national banks and other funders.


Axiom is a microloan fund intentionally focused on serving minority, women-owned and disadvantaged business enterprises, by providing access to capital and business development support.
