Nearly half of Americans would have trouble coming up with

$2000 to cover unexpected expenses. 

Evidence that millions of Americans cannot get much needed financing through traditional means continues to mount.  Key innovators, academics and community leaders are using technology to rethink the way credit is administered and expand the ranks of those who can qualify. Our country is still in the grips of a major credit crisis that requires a thoughtful national solution.  

We hope you will join FSIC for this continuing series of panel discussions on ways to provide safe, innovative and viable credit solutions to underserved consumers.
