“We’re building the future of dignified financial products that we all deserve…”

Millions of people don’t have access to credit. Their options for getting money are limited and unfair, and it’s easy to become trapped in debt. This is the first problem LendUp set out to solve, by applying our combined expertise in software, data science, credit, and education to our shared passion for justice.

Our first product, an alternative to payday loans, transforms a trap into an opportunity to borrow at lower rates and build credit. And every day, we see our customers succeed. Next, we’re building the future of dignified financial products that we all deserve, giving us back our time, money, and control of our financial lives.

We are just getting started.
