Credit Building is Asset Building
Wednesday, July 25 2012, 1:00 – 2:00 pm EDT
Co-presented by CFED and NeighborWorks America
Over 500 attendees joined us for a discussion on the importance of credit building. Without a solid credit score and credit history, individuals cannot qualify for loans to buy a home or a car, start a business or even rent an apartment. Furthermore, the prevalence of predatory and payday lenders creates easy opportunities for Americans to fall into debt and damage their credit, thus hindering their ability to build other assets and financial security. Vikki Frank of Credit Builders Alliance and Nancy Yuill of Innovative Changes shared their organizations' efforts to raise awareness of the importance of credit building and discussed their initiatives aimed at helping clients repair their credit scores. Presentations were followed by a Q&A session.
