Mission Asset Fund - Lending Circles and Loans for Financial Fairness

Our vision is to create a fair financial marketplace for hardworking people. Because when one person is invisible, stuck or strapped, it hurts an entire family. And when one family suffers, the whole community suffers. That’s why we work to make Lending Circles and other loan products available nationwide. Our work is built on hidden strengths: of people, of nonprofits, of communities.

CEO

Mission Asset Fund

By reporting to credit bureaus, we’re helping people establish or improve their credit scores so that they then have the ability to do whatever they need to do in their lives, whether it’s rent an apartment, or buy a house, or buy a car, get a loan to start a business, or whatever it is they want to do. Now they have the tool to actually become economic actors in our system.

As a former foster youth, I have already aged out of a lot of programs and services that could support me financially. Given the current pandemic, there are few to no programs to help students in situations like mine. This grant would allow me to take control of my life and alleviate the burden that this pandemic has already placed on me and my family.
