Credit Building Strategies for Entrepreneurs
Credit building is a powerful tool that helps entrepreneurs take control of their financial lives, establish and grow their businesses, and pursue other asset building goals. In this webinar, Credit Builders Alliance (CBA) will introduce you to the services and support available through CBA membership. In addition, you will learn about the power of credit building for entrepreneurs and how you can incorporate credit building into your array of program and support services. We will explore credit building strategies specific to entrepreneurs and how personal credit intersects with small business success. CBA is an innovative non-profit social enterprise dedicated to building the capacity of a diverse and growing network of hundreds of nonprofits across the country, that help low- and moderate- income households build strong credit and other financial assets. CBA serves as a unique and vital bridge between our members and the major credit reporting agencies (CRAs). Our core services, CBA Reporter, CBA Business Reporter and CBA Access, provide nonprofits with both the ability and critical technical assistance to report loan data to the CRAs and to pull low-cost client credit reports for the purposes of financial education, outcome tracking, and underwriting.
